Mixed Media Monday, An Experiment, Wondrous Box




Here’s a look at last week’s challenge, Cover Up Good.  This was a tough one, mostly because most of the time, if I like something about my page, I don’t want to hide it.  I did though, as much as I could.  Not my favorite challenge, I have to say.image

Acrylic paint, stencils, cut outs, spray inks, stamps, die cuts, doodads, ceramic beads, ribbon, black sharpie.  Since the prompt was to cover up good, I decided to put a black bar over the eyes a la Glamour Do’s and Don’ts.  That’s the first thing I turn to.  How about you?


My Yarnbox!  It arrived yesterday and, as usual, I snatched it away from Mr. iknead when he brought it in and opened it up.  Yarn!  Sock yarn!  My favorite  colors!

I’ve discovered a site that piqued my curiosity (OK, my curiousity is in a constant state of pique), a publishing platform with everything from magazines and personal portfolios to catalogs and (be still my beating heart) knitting patterns and everything in between.  It’s called Issuu.  Interesting.  I’m giving it a whirl with my blog.  The site suggests that documents being published be converted to PDF files, so I may lose patience with it – but, like I said, I’ll take it for a test drive to check it out.
