Two fun challenges in a row!! I really liked this week’s challenge. I originally was going to do a more traditional ornament. But, I was so taken by my class last week with Kelly last week and all that has happened this month; I decided to do a Little Book of Hope.
I picked some of my most festive decorative papers. Then I created the cover using two cool papers and adding this little piece of left over fringe for the bottom. I then stitched the book together to create a Fukoro Toji (see last week’s Mixed Media post). Right before I stitched the book together I placed ribbon down the middle to create the hanger for the book. As I commented a few months ago, “your thoughts create your future”. As such, inside of my little book of Hope, I am collaging all the things that I hope for now and in the future. This just puts a smile on my face and lifts my spirit.
What a cool challenge for the week. I hope all of you have a great week!
