Mixed Media February Challenge at Berry71Bleu!

Hi there! Today I'd like to show you my mixed media creation for Berry71Bleu's February's Challenge hosted by Mandy. 


Some close-ups:


When I started, I wasn't really sure how it was going to end up,which is what made creating this so fun!
I started with a plain white canvas and applied texture paste,using a Pink Paislee heart mask. I then glued a selection of diecuts including that cool lock die cut from our sponsor,Mollossi. The lace was from my thrift store stash.I misted with Lindy's Stamp Gang and Heidi Swapp products and randomly stamped using Something Tattered "April" stamp in black ink. I painted and crackled the Blue Fern title and added these beautiful Manor House flowers,also from our sponsor. Last came some Molossi bling, stash buttons and tattered Angels tickets. I hit the whole thing with some more random gesso and called it done!
