Altered Art: Enamelled Mugs

Warm Wishes – Kraft & Kreme

I’ve been asked to do a guest slot on the Less is More blog today ­čÖé

This week’s theme is Kraft & Kreme, and as always, a clean and simple design is required. Ok, my design might not be so simple to make, but it’s clean and simple under the definition of lots of white space (i.e. unfilled – kraft card isn’t exactly white!).

WOW Feb 2013

 

I cut a 15cm sq kraft card to shape, keeping the oval offcut from the front. I made a mix of 50:50 WOW! Primary Bark with WOW!
