...a little mixed media... AWESOME!

Today I have a layout packed with all kinds of mixed media yumminess! Here is just a sneak peak as to what to come in this post...
The background paper is Heidi Swapp Specialty Cardstock that I inked up with various Color Shine sprays... I think this is one of my favorite spray inks!
I used Pearlized Fragments from Stampendous for the black strip you see... I painted the black paint and then covered with a thin layer of Glossy Accents. While it's still wet you want to sprinkle the fragments on to it. Once it dried I went over it with another thin layer of Glossy Accents.
The purple polka dots were created with a stencil I made out of a piece of thick chipboard that held embellishments and a mixture of Modeling Paste and Acrylic Paint.
Now for some embellishing...
I made these using beer bottle caps
I flatten them with a hammer...
Then painted them with Black Paint & Glossy Accents... while the were still wet I sprinkled some Distress Glitter on to them.
I  then adhered my photo....and this is where the problem started.. I had all this and then got stuck on the layout! That is a horrible feeling... So I started surfing my fave blogs for inspiration and came across a PageMaps challenge:
...and this is what I came up with...
I am very very happy with my layout. I had so much fun creating it!
Until next time... wishing you a creative and happy day!
