Mixed Media Color Challenge #3



Had some more fun playing along with A Mixed Media Color Challenge again this week. I have to be honest and admit that my background had already been done, it was a reject piece of craft paper that I had created a background on for something else using a diamond mask and inks, but didn't end up using. It was too pretty to throw away so kept it just incase and as it happened the color scheme for this  challenge was pale blue and turquoise. So, I stuck it into my journal and played around with it a bit more adding some texture with paste, some stamping some more gesso and paint and a pretty little floral die-cut.








Thanks for dropping by today, have a great weekend.

  18. So glad you decided to keep that background work, happens ever so often that I want to chuck something in the bin that ends up being the perfect thing for something later on. Love the die cut delicacy against the bolder background textures. Just beautiful Gayle, just beautiful! xoxo
