Mixed Media Collage Altered Book

Hi, crafty friends and visitors!

I hope you are enjoying the beautiful sunny weather! I am spending my time mostly outside so I am not so active at the blogland lately.
I am here today to announce that our new challenge at Stamps and Stencils has just started and our lovely Sue has chosen the theme: Words with Meaning!

This is how she described her challenge theme:

 I may be an old romantic but I love to see quotes and meaningful sayings on pieces of art. These can be quotes that are particularly meaningful to you or family sayings ! So, for this challenge I want to see your words taking centre stage, big and bold ! Remember, as always, you need to include some stamping or stencilling or both ! 


I was inspired by the artist Dede Willingham (Inkiwell) and her fantastic artwork so I decided to alter an old big book I found at our local charity shop. 
This is what I created.
