 Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! Today I have a mixed media project to share featuring a lot of texture and dimension:
I'm playing along with the Mixed Media Place current challenge where we are being challenged to be inspired by a quote in their graphic shown below. I chose "Stay patient and trust your journey":
 I'm also joining along with the current Creative Carte Blanche challenge where we are being challenged to draw inspiration from the music video "God Only Knows" featuring the Beach Boys. I was inspired by the actual title, "God Only Knows".
I created a canvas featuring a photo that Scott took of the beautiful Notre-Dame Cathedral while we were vacationing in Paris:

 I added a lot of texture, dimension and interest to the canvas using a lot of Prima Finnabair products including modeling paste, antique silver crackle texture paste, Purple Mica Powder,, silver micro beads, black and white gesso:
 I embellished with a variety of Finnabair metal trinkets including flowers, a heart, a clock face and bottle cap:

It's Day 25 of 30 in 30 therefore, I will be linking this painting there as well:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)
