mixed media monday "autumn colours"


I needed a book to keep all my craft cds in so I made this. I found a clear box full of plastic cd sleeves in Asda for £1!! so I cut the box open and used that for the cover. I painted the cover in shades of brown, orange and yellow, added a fabric stamped image, buttons, threads and a copper embossed circle with an eyelet. As it is full of inspirational craft cds I have added the word "imagine".
