Book Paper...... for TioT's

The new challenge theme over at
wants us to use Book Paper .

Please pop over to see how the D.T.  interpreted the theme and we hope you will join us there.

This is the last of the projects I had started making  in advance before we went away .
I made a mixed media piece with some digital additions.
Beginning with card and some torn book paper.
Antique linen distress ink for shading.

It takes no guessing for those that know me well, the stencils were  used next.

On the left are a couple of  photos showing the stages I completed in the conventional crafting way.

I had to finish  my card  using digital additions.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, you are always very welcome here.

Digital information can be
found in my sidebar.
