Prima May Bap

Lots of Layers and some Mixed Media!!
Hi all and welcome to my blog!!
Well I have been busy and keeping my
promise to update regularly !!
Life throws us some doozies as we all know
and I guess we can get caught up with all
the negative stuff and forget
to "Stop And smell the roses"
So I have been trying to put my not so happy
thoughts into my art....as you do!!
Well it's what makes us happy, me happy :)!!
So I have been having a go at this yummy
"Mixed Media", it's funny
Been doing it for as long as I have been doing my art
I guess but it's something that we all incorporate
into our cards/ layouts without even realising!!
Stamping ,painting, sploshing, stencilling,
using fabrics, papers ect....
So anyways I thought I'd have some fun
with this and really make my page POP
so I doodled, painted, splotched (lol) even threw in some
sequins for good measure!!
Love these photos, took these of my son and his "BF",
down at our park, they're in a cardboard box !!
They had a free family day and there was a maze made out of
huge boxes ....how to entertain kids for ages...BOXES!!!
Great day and they loved this maze!!
So enough rambling, I came up with this LO and am entering
it into Prima's May Bap
Here's their awesome sketch ...

Cool hey!!
and here are my photos of my interpretation....
Hope you enjoy!!

The sketch called for some check patterns, so
of course used my 2nd fav stencil Fin's checks....
sploshed that around with some gesso, and covered that
with some glimmer mists and silks "Guatemalan Green", 
Dragonfly, trunk bay glimmers!!
Modelling paste with the new paint splots prima stencil
Sorry my bad forgot the name shhh!!

Cut out some hearts, butterflies and leaves with white glitter paper
my stash... incorporated some yummy
resins and lushes flowers Prima, Prima Baby!!
Ohh and had a bit of fun with their black wire too...

Close Ups!!

I have a love for corrugated card too so threw some of that in for an extra layer
Or two!! Doily's and some divine chippy corners  !!


So love the colours in this, they really bring the colours in the photos out!!
Hope you enjoyed this
Please  Leave some love (wink, wink:)!!)
And have a great week...till we meet again xxx

  4. This sure is a stunner my dear! I am sorry to hear that life is taking you on a bumpy ride, but with your attitude I am sure the road will straighten out and you will find many moments to smell the roses along the road. Creating is a really good way of letting all the must's just go and do whatever your innerself wants to create. I think your layout is fantastic! awesome details and layers! You can be really proud of what you have created here! xoxo
