Inspire Me Thursday #4



Theme this week is BIG. We were encouraged to make bigger art than we normally would. Since I most often make ATCs, anything bigger than 2.5"x3.5" is BIG.

I decided to work on a page for my friend Nicolette's Vintage Grunge book which features all hand-made paper. It measures 8.5"x11" ~ bigger than my usual comfort zone. To make it, I used some of my handmade stamps, brush markers, crayons (my favourites!), acrylic and some vintage images. This page also features moving parts, hand sewing and dangly beads. I loved making this and I hope Nicolette will enjoy it too!
