Sunday Stampers #316 Everyday I Write the Book

Hels chosen theme this week at the Sunday Stampers Challenge is "Everyday I write the Book". I haven't entered anything for ages, so was determined to join in again this week.
This is a recycled project partly from an old Dragons Dream tag and also from a box my sat nav arrived in (off on my travels this week, steer clear of the M60 lol).
I was never happy with my tag, but loved the butterfly and the bookpage paper, so inspired by the corrugated piece of box that I'd ripped and painted with "Mermaid" Fresco paint, I ripped into it to create a shape to fit onto the cardboard, and added some paint around the edges.
I was going to pop the whole thing on to a canvas, but decided that I liked the shape as it was, so just added eyelets and garden twine, which I think looks fab with kraft and corrugated cardstock.
Happy now I am, lol.
