Pastel colours and floral clusters...


Sweet-12-x12-mixed-media-canvas-by-Yvonne-Yam

Hmmm...I think I am actually getting the hang of pastel colours and the floral clusters. :)


Oh yes, that would be an 8x8 canvas panel on a 12x12 canvas. As always, overzealous colouring and stamping on the background patterned paper requires serious coverup. *winks*


And then of course, I really got into the whole layering of embellishments. 


You know how it is....the brain says "Stop wasting embellishments!", the heart says "Just one more here...and here...and here..." and before you know it, there's glue on the embellishment and you just have to glue it down. *LOL*


Lots of fun textures...lace, satin, metal, wood, plastic...


I love the shimmer from the Wink of Stella brush pen....


I also added more sparkle with glass bead gel and glitter paint.


I went in with some Crackle accents on the Prima wooden ATC.


It was a lot of work but I had fun...and now a valid reason to buy more embellishments...you know, as replenishments of course. *winks*

Playing along with the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge...I went with Stencil, Glitter and Patterned paper.

*Edited* This layout earned an Honorable Mention at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.

I love all the embellishments! There are definitely not too many but yes you should buy more for your stash. I think the pink and blue combination is perfect for the floral and lace canvas. The little bird is my favorite part. It's exciting to visually cruise around this piece. Thanks for letting me see it.
