be kind to yourself 45

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, August 13, 2014 @ 9:05 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are having a great week! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of my sweet daughter Angie along with beautiful papers from the Pion Design My Precious Daughter collection:
I embellished with a variety of flowers from my stash, die cut foliage and die cut hearts:
The fun sentiment is from a new stamp set designed by Kasia:
I added lots of texture using the Brick Wall stencil along with fiber paste and for the splashes of color, I randomly applied the following 13arts mists: Bordeaux, Turquoise Light and Violet:
Rather than hand journaling, I cut out one of the wonderful sayings right from the paper as well as three pretty little butterflies:
Here's a collage of close-ups:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Let's Get Sketchy sketch challenge:
and for color inspiration, I joined along with the Sassy Scrappers August challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ hope you have a great day!
Be Sweet ;)

Oh, I love all these layers. I love the way my eye naturally moves through this piece and takes in every delicious detail. That takes such skill! The embellishments are so perfectly placed,and just right. The texture and color you added with your mixed media background is soft and shabby...I just love it!
