Mixed Media Foil Art

I've been playing again with the kitchen foil lol

This is a journal that im making for a friend in the hope of inspiring her to pick up her paint brushes and pencils and get stuck into some art.

Its about the size of  A4 and has nice strong art paper inside,  I've attached lots of bits and pieces to it, rolled up foil to spell her name Rainy, some dried flowers and beads and i cut a strip off a twine place matt to run accross the centre. Covered the whole front and back with foil attaching with paverpol and some pva glue, Now i'll paint, rub and sand and coat it in an aging medium then rub back until i get the effect i'm after.  Really liking it so far.

I just hope it turns out nicely and that she likes it enough to get stuck in to do some art work !!!
I've been following along with Gary Reefs site as he has some great ideas and projects to do
Thanks heaps for all the inspiration Gary :)
