Courage is being yourself...

Afternoon bloggers!!  I was searching through my posts on blogger when I came across this one, in draft mode, which was scheduled to go live last week and I have been so busy that I didn't realise it hadn't.. not cool Blogger, NOT cool!!! 

Anyway, I have something a little different to share with you. I recently signed up to participate in a mixed media circle journal and so I tried my hand at making a mixed media canvas as one of my design team projects for Quixotic Paperie

The stamp I've featured is from Susana Loves Stamps' NEW mixed media release, Blank Canvas, and this one is called Flights of Botanica. She has been stamped out using Adirondack paint. 

For the background I used 4 different colour sprays (Glimmer Mist & Dylusions). Then I layered on a white doily, which I painted over, and stamped out my sentiment. I added some Prima washi tape and a metal charm tied with button floss. I cut the butterfly out from some Prima paper and coated it with glossy accents. To finish I doodled on some stitching. 

I love how it turned out and will definitely be dabbling a bit more :D 

Thanks for popping in!

This is lovely... lovely dabbling... :)
I have some things to have a dabble, glimmer mist and so on, but haven't quite got up the nerve yet... it's not knowing quite where to start!!! Hope I am as successful as you have been.
