Mixed Media Monday - School

This week over at Mixed Media Monday, we have a special guest host again. Sandy chose the fun theme of "school", so here is the piece I did with the theme. I used a chipboard house for the base and added some vintage dictionary page, vintage music, stamped images, etc., which I distressed The piece was finished off with a collage image, a chipboard rusted star, rick rack and a beautiful lace butterfly that was hand painted by my daughter, Danni, in lovely vintage colours.
