A baroque pencil holder, Jane's Journal's final GD piece

Hello it's Jane from Jane's Journal here again with my final GD post for Tracy. She asked me to make a couple more mixed media pieces for her and this is the last one. Today I am using the great new baroque Dutch Dobadoo card art. I also used the softwood puzzle pieces I had left over from this project.

I decided to make myself a pen container that would make me smile in my garden studio so I used lots of inspirational words.

I have a step by step over at my blog here if you would like to see how this came together.

I used mount board for my pen pot as I wanted it to hold my Sukura pens which I use a lot for lettering and doodling. I also used them for the doodling around the puzzle pieces and lettering.

Thanks to Tracy for inviting me over here for these 6 guest designer pieces, I've really enjoyed myself and getting inky. Enjoy the rest of the summer.

Crafty hugs,

Jane x
