Mixed Media Monthly January Challenge - Ring in the New

Hello there! I have some mid-month inspiration for you for our current challenge, Ring in the New.

Image may contain: text

I created a little mini album to chronicle goals for 2018. I think it's much more fun and inspirational than a plain old piece of paper. ;-)

The covers are cut using Eileen Hull's Trinket Box die and colored with Distress inks and sprays. I added some stamping using archival ink and then covered it all with Crazing Collage Medium for a subtle crackle.

The pages are accordion style and I stamped on the front and back.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to head on over to Mixed Media Monthly to check out all the cool projects! You still have time to enter and then you'll be in the running for winning a mixed media prize pack from the Prize Vault.
