Hi, There!
I am trying something new - for me - a mixed media card - well more like a page for my journal.  I love fairies and just thought maybe I would start making random pages and put them into a journal just for everything in Fairyland!  Since I have so many fairy stamps etc., it will be a rather big project that I will have to start once I retire;)  But here is my first attempt, and I got the inspiration for this from Eileen Godwin's you tube post on her master board - just lovely - thanks Eileen!!!  Till next time, thanks for stopping by,  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

I would like to enter the following challenges:
The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #21 "glitter (so glad I found this blog - great inspiration here)

Allsorts Challenge Blog Week 348 - Bring on the Bling (great inspiration here too!!!)

Card Recipe:
Flower background was put in by using a Tim Holtz stencil with gesso. Distress inks and paints - Seedless Preserves, Fozzilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, and Broken China rubbed over the dried gesso.  Removed some color with a baby wipe on flower centers.  Sprinkled some water over the whole image.  Stamped random stars and spots with black ink.  Stamped the fairies and fairy orbs from Lavinia Stamps.  Used a white paint pen to accent some flowers and orbs.  The orbs are filled in with Glossy Accent, Black Soot distress ink around the edges of the orbs and the edges of the page.  Lots of liquid pearls and star dust!  Wood text is covered with black paint and then covered with Glossy Accent.  Had lots of fun with this!!:)
