Some one had to be the Princess....

More Mixed Media has just launched their challenge for May.
As always it'd mixed media with an optional twist...and the twist is "Pink"

I've had this board book hanging around in my craft room for ages, it's one of those things that got moved from one place to another, but never used. I think it was the shape that put me off...but then I had the idea to gesso all the pages and then paint them pale pink, using acrylic paint.
I painted all pages the same, then adding background using a selection of stamps, each page is slightly different.

I added the sentiment to the front page, also added the 2 girls from Tim Holtz "Relatives"
The crown was a charm that I removed the loop from, then using a piece of wood and some pressure I slightly flattened the crown so it would sit nicely on the cover.
To finish a selection of different ribbons and threads were tied to the book links.
Hope you can pop over during the next 4 weeks and join in with our challenge..there is a prize on offer, so well worth a visit..
