MAWTT Challenge 91 - Precious metals

Hi Everyone

Before I start on my project if anyone is going to the NEC on Sunday and would like to say hello, just leave me a message below. It would be great to meet fellow crafters in person.

This week at MAWTT it is my turn to host the challenege and I have chosen the theme 'Precious Metals'. I would like to see any project that includes a precious metal and the best-known precious metals are the coinage metals gold and silver and another is platinum.

I have chosen silver as the precious metal for my project, which is a page from a memories book I am making. When finished it will be for the wedding Ken and I are going to in Cyprus so that Richard and Sal can record the occasion. When I asked Sal what colour she would like she chose hot pink.

This page has the TH bird and cage made in embossed silver card and I covered the bird with black acrylic paint and rubbed some of it off so that it showed up more. As you can see my colour palette includes pink, silver, black, grey and white. Tucked in behind the the bird cage mount are three tags on which wedding guests will write a short message and I will include some photo and journalling mats for Sal to complete later.

Additional silver includes the corner mount, silver beads at the bottom of the cage and a silver chain and small silver key.

This week Merley Impressions are sponsoring the challenge and are giving away this fabulous prize for the winner.

So I hope I will see you joining in my precious metals challenge this week so I can come on over and leave you some love.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
