The queen of clubs - Mixed Up


Hiya! It's Saturday and I love it because that means crafty time! At least hoping so, my to-do list is getting dauntingly long! There's something new for Mixed Up in that list, too, but this little album was made and published in the online platform in June. It was a piece sponsored by Artful Days and you can see many of their treasures in there. 

The project was inspired by an old Bible. I don't consider myself highly religious and it's a very personal thing for me, but I do love the look of old family Bibles. There's usually the family tree in there and the big book has a feel of generations in it. Our family Bible is a huge black one with golden details in the cover and also a beautifully embossed pattern. Those details and colors inspired this little journal.


I used the Eileen Hull's Passport die to make the little journal. The covers are made of thick cardboard but the inside papers are just what I happened to have at hand. There's watercolor paper, old book paper, cardstock and even some funky looking packaging paper I happened to have. 

The cover has quite a few embellishments in the golden and bronze shades to match the inspiration source. I also used one mini playing card in there, the queen of clubs. In Finnish the suite is called "risti", cross, so that seemed appropriate. 

If you wish to see how the book was made in a step by step form, you must become a member of the Mixed Up site. You can do that here (link) and then access over tutorials both in step by step and video form! I'm a resident tutor so there's quite a few projects there from me, too, and more to come!

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
