A wee shot at Mixed Media !!

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

I fancied a wee change and found a fab shop near Edinburgh that sold lots of crafty goodies and especially Dusty attic Chipboard called The Mad Scrapper . I have been looking at projects on Youtube for tutorials and ideas . So here is my first proper attempt quite pleased but I am still learning loads .

I have used Maja Design Coffee
 in the Arbour design papers . 

I have framed the cut out picture and added some cheesecloth and large daisies WOC blooms and Tim Holtz tag and buttons from my stash .

I have used some metal embellies from prima which I have coloured with pastel gelatos . The stencils used are Tim Holtz dots and blossom with white texture paste and I have also used Tim Holtz papillion stamps underneath .I have made my own mists using reinkers modge podge glue n seal and water in a mister bottle... I like to match the colours with the papers 

I have covered the words with a prima chalk edger and then used some white gelato over it to colour them . The tiny frame  and 
the pearl centers are from LLC.

I hope you like my canvas 
I would like to enter it into the following super challenges ;-
