Book Page Swap, Theme - Keys

Hi lovelies...........hope you're all well.
A grey, wet morning today.....just my kind of weather lol. Well, the
wallpapering didn't get done yesterday but I did at least get the wallpaper & I
 already have the paint so that's a start.........fingers crossed it'll be done on
 Monday..............and at least I sorted out 2 big bags of rubbish!
So today I have a book page to share,  each page is 5 x 5 inches & we  had to
 leave a 3/4 inch gap down the left side so's it could be punched ready 
for binding. The theme for this page was keys....I started with a square of kraft
card & added a dictionary page. The corrugated cardboard layer was scraped
with a pencil to distress it a bit, swiped with some acrylic paint & then I added
some crackle paint. I used acrylic paint on the key & chain and then wiped
 most of it off, the wings were die cut & painted with mica. Lastly, I added a
couple of metal corners. Loved making this page, it's great to be able to use
so many different mediums all on one page.......& very messy too lol!
Thanks for calling today & whatever you're up to......have a lovely weekend!


  1. This is brilliant Jo, a fabulous design and great texture..

  2. Clever use of the dictionary page showing the definition of 'Key' in the background. Love the texture and elements used. I'm really getting in to the idea of mixed media having seen a few blogs lately, just need to get a few supplies and gear-up for the messy part.

  3. This is fabulous Jo, love it. Carol x

  4. Another fab page Jo and I love the definition as a background, what a good idea xx

  5. This looks fabulous Jo and the book page in the background really pops everything out. I am sure you will get round to your decorating soon enough!
    Thanks for the ATC's - they arrived yesterday and are fabulous

  6. great page Jo - really lovely. Hope the decorating gets done soon xx

  7. This is lovely Jo. Great idea for a male card.
    Good luck with the wallpapering. I bought mine 3.5 years ago and it still hasn't got up. To be fair, we have been waiting for someone to replaster our ceiling and no-one wanted to do such a small job until 2 weeks ago!!

  8. This is a a lovely artistic book page. Love the colours and that fab key with wings - great job Jo. Hope you get your decorating sorted soon - Michelle x
