Nicely Done Design Challenge #1

Good afternoon fellow crafters.  Just got home from Church.  My Pastor preached a good sermon on having a love for others as Jesus has for us.  "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."  John 13:34
 Boy, now I know you know that can be hard sometimes!  LOL
I'm a work in progress and with His help someday I will arrive at that level.

Well, you know, I can't go a day without getting into "Edie's Craft lab," so here I am.  I finished a project/challenge that was created for, Chana's new blog.

We were to make a card or a paper item including these contents: Buttons, Twine, Handmade flowers, and Corrugated cardboard.  It wasn't as difficult as I had thought.  Here's my entry:

Handmade Art Journal

I painted the Corrugated cardboard with Acrylic paint.  The flowers are made from an egg container, cut into the form of a flower then painted with acrylic paints. I must give credit to a video I saw on you tube showing how to make these flowers.  It was not my idea. Buttons were used for the flowers centers, then they were covered with Distress stickles.  I made a bow with the twine.  The memories word was a diecut from my Cricut.   

I used my Cinch to make it into a Mini Art Journal. This project really stimulated my creativity.
 Thanks for stopping by.  Leave a comment if you desire to.
