I was sent a note card from Chloe when I made a purchase from her Etsy shop. As with all cards I am sent it went on to my magnet board to be admired. As it was sat there on display an idea began to form... I fussy cut all the florals from the card - a good job to do whilst the telly is on! My idea was to put them on top of a wreath, so I got to work with my mixed media supplies...
I used a combination of Inktense pencils (to draw the circle to work around) and Shimmerz (Aqua Huez, Creameez, Vibez and Inklingz for all the other goodness!)
I can't tell you how much I loved the end result! And I had so much fun doing it, which is the best part. I tried to colour match the mixed media to the fussy cut embellishments as best I could.
I added a few enamel dots in turquoise to pick out the turquoise in the photograph. I also added a healthy dose of sequins - Autumn Joy Fall Sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps to be precise.
I then decided I needed a little bit of green too, so found some more enamel dots.
This layout was done with Picture This! challenge in mind, including layers, fussy cutting and one photo.
And here it is all together...
Thanks for stopping by!
