Post 235: Mixed Media Layout- Be the You, You Want to Be

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a Mixed Media Layout today. I really love the sentiment on it which reads, "Be the You, You Want to Be". I have played with pinks here with white, black and silver for contrast and highlights. I have done background stamping and stenciling. The sentiments, stamped butterflies and chipboard butterflies and feathers are heat embossed in silver and pink. I have tried to create some texture and layers here. Colors were added with sprays and acrylics with a base coat of gesso. In the end, created some splatter. Have added flowers, gems and twine as embellishments. The layout is quite glittery in real life. 

Here are a few close-up photos of the layout:
