Mixed Media Monday - Show Us What You Love To Do






When I chose the challenge "show us what you love to do" for Mixed Media Monday this week, I left myself with a bit of a dilemna, because there are so many things I love to do at the moment. I finally settled on an altered children's board book. I love working on them from cover to cover, and have been wanting to do one based around "Monday's Child" - so here was the golden opprotunity, grin. I've used lots of collage images, computer generated wording, papers, German Scrap and lots of other bits and pieces.
