Mixed Media Collage

Back in the day I used to do a lot of mixed media collage but it seemed kind of indulgent because they weren't "useful" like scrapbooking. This morning I decided that I've had a dreadful week - capital D dreadful) and I would submit to my whims.

Barbara posted a challenge at TSR to recycle something.

And this is what I made:



I used nearly the whole piece of cardboard, a page from a book, embossing powder, beads and wire.
