IMAGINE...a Mix'd Media piece 56

Mona Pendleton | Friday, March 2, 2012 @ 3:57 PM | , ,

Hi there! I have something a lil' different to share today. If you have visited me before, you probably already know I like to play with all sorts of products and like to take a chance and try new things. Well, today's project IS one of those new things. If someone were to ask me to describe my papercrafting style, I'm not really sure how I would respond! I love the Shabby pastel look but I hold fast to believing variety IS the spice of life as well as papercrafting and I love mixing things up! Keeps it all fun and interesting for both me and hopefully those of you who visit?
I made this little hanging using some fun new dies from Spellbinders, Donna Salazar patterned paper and stamps. I especially love the my girl's beautiful wings. Those wings are from the Spellbinders Wings of Hope die set which percentage of the sales will be donated to charity. You can read all about HERE.
I couldn't wait to pull out the Bitty Blossoms dies and make some of my own flowers. So easy and inexpensive! I'm entering this piece into the March challenge over at Donna Salazar's Girlie Grunge site. This month's challenge is to create a project focusing on Flowers, Butterflies and a touch of Yellow. If you haven't visited this site yet, you don't know what you are missing!
 Thanks so much for visiting ~ hope you have a great weekend! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Donna Salazar Dollface
Dies: Spellbinders Wings of HopeBitty Blossoms, Girlie Grunge Labels, Mix'd Media Elements, Mix'd Media Playtime, Wonderful Wings, Grand Ovals, Grand Large Labels, Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Donna Salazar Spring in Bloom, Antiquities
