A while back I picked up a few kits from Art-C that contained a small accordion book and a mini tin to store it in. I thought they might be a fun and easy project so I gave some away and kept a couple for myself.
The other day I thought it might be nice to create a little box of inspiration to remind me of my OLW for 2016. Something that I could just toss in my bag and carry with me. So I grabbed some supplies and set about to have some fun.
I added some texture using modeling paste and a stencil then sponged and brushed on some grey, silvers & blues.
Additional layers of magenta, more blue and my absolute favorite, Quinacridone Nickle Azo Gold helped created some great depth of color and helped the textured bits pop.
I added some stamping, paint splatters and distressing then edged the accordion book with a black ink pad. Using my labeler, I added a few words that I want to be reminded of whenever I open my little booklet.
I did the same basic process on the outside of the tin, added my One Little Word for 2016, INTENTIONAL, and Voilà my little box of inspiration was complete.
Thank you for reading. I wish you a wonderful week.
