Have you heard? Berry71Bleu is the sponsor of the March Sketch Challenge over at Once Upon A Sketch , so I invite you to come play along for a chance at one of the prizes that are being given away.
One of the prizes that will be randomly chosen by entry is A GORGEOUS handmade tag from Berry71Bleu.
You can choose to do a layout and journaling based on the sketch, or an altered item that includes a quote. I chose to do an Altered Memory Book Box, and my quote on it reads, "A mother's love is peace, it need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.# ~ Errich Fromm
I created this book box using my Scraps Of Darkness February Kit. As you can see the kit was loaded with so many gorgeous papers that were perfect for layering and fussy cutting. My beautiful Berry Bleu Tag takes center stage, and then is surrounded by fussy cut timepieces, Kaisercraft Rub Ons that I rubbed onto card stock and then fussy cut and layered in.
I used so much technique on this box in order to get the worn and textured look of a vintage book. I got the look of a worn book binding from Lisa Novogrodski's (Raining) Masking Tape Tutorial over at Scraps Of Darkness. I loved this technique when I saw a project that Lisa made using her fabulous tutorial, and I just had to recreate it. Instead of masking tape, I used Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and I love how it turned out. Thank you Lisa!!
I just love how easy Marivic's Berry Bleu Tags make putting together a beautiful project. I love how this book box turned out, and I love that you let me share it with you!! ~Renea
