Muddy Mondays...

'TREY'sure Box


This is my first attempt at a Mixed Media Monday challenge. I saw this challenge as an inspiration and went for it. I typically work with projects on a much larger scale, but had quite a bit of fun working on these smalls.
All my items were … found or leftovers … which makes this even more special, by using all those little tidbits I’d been saving for something.

Top: I had an old tin with a clear top that I’d been saving for years and a favorite picture of my son… years ago… with misc clippings and stamps. If you can read the little poem, it fits him to a “T”.

Bottom: Items include scrap mat board, scrap-booking ‘scraps’, magazine clippings, and old key … got to use my metal stamps too  and just misc stuff. Great Afternoon Fun!!!

Looking forward to the next challenge.

About Me

My photo
We live on the family farm in Mid-Missouri with our kids and animals. I love to make anything... and using repurposed items is the BEST!!! I like 'junk' as other people refer to it, but that 'junk' has a history and claims new life in many of my projects. Building primitive furniture, painting, writing, photography, stained glass... guess I'm what you'd call a jack of all trades... trying to master some. LOL! Anyway, if you have old barns or buildings with loads of junk you'd like to clear, give me a holler. I might just find myself in your neck of the woods!
