Card 1... Box...

So I am in a facebook group called art aMUSEment, it is run by Kelly Hoernig.  Its a fun group and this year Kelly came up with the idea of picking 52 cards of the same size and doing a card with a theme every week so thought this would be a fun thing to do so I am going to join in. Well as many times as I can.
This week the word is box so I brought some cards from the second hand shop some quite big 140 mm x 85 mm or 5.5 inch x 3.34 inch so a good size they are a game of learning times tables..
I then painted some Gesso on the card as the cards are quite glossy... Then grabbed a baby wipe and painted with blue and yellow.  Then stenciled with some black.   I got to it making a little box and painted it and stuck that on with dimension foam.. Well Tracy from Mixed Media Monday was talking about choosing a word for the year and mine is explore.  I chose explore as I am on this journey to explore Mixed Media and art Journaling and its a whole new world to explore for me.  So I popped that word in the little box.. I just picked up this set of stamps just last week and had not chosen my word at that time.. When I picked up the set its called 'pack your bags collection' from Kaisercraft all I saw on this set was the word journey and thought I could use that a bit in my art journal pages.  So had a closer look today and wow it had my word on it Explore so how great is that.. All the stamps I used today came from this same set so that worked on this really well.. I added the date from my date stamp as it had date written on the stamp.  It was all meant to be hey. 
Here is a Link to the video that Kelly popped up on the facebook page. Take a look and maybe you might like to join in too.. 

Have a great day 
Sandy :)


  1. love your take on the *box* card.. this is great.. :)

  2. love the travel balloon, date, and postage travel stamps that coordinate with explore!!

  3. I love the little interactive box, which you have to EXPLORE to find out what's in there, quite the clever lady Vickie Ann!! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  4. You have done a awesome job on combining the two groups challenges together you are a talent lady, and as you know I belong to both groups and enjoy it very much. I am sending you Love from Snowy Missouri USA.

  5. I like the idea of doing a deck of cards... one for each week of the year to reflect back on after it's all said and done. That's a neat idea indeed. I'll be keeping an eye on you and seeing how it goes for you. Happy creating!


Thank-you for the lovely comment..
