Mixed Media 1

Here is my first try at mixed media - and I must admit I
rather liked doing it.  I googled 'mixed media' to learn
a little what it is about, and then I roughly followed a
film on You Tube, teaching the subject.  I then went to
a 3-hour class and made my 2nd mixed media picture,
this time on canvas.  I shall put that picture up soon.
This picture was made using 240 gm drawing paper.

I used lots of pieces of paper,  lace, molding paste,
stencils, paint, cut out heart and painted it and went
around the edge with a black marker, small pieces of
two materials and for the words I used Tattered Lace
Retro Alphabet  and Spellbinders Shapeabilities -
Floral Flourishes.

The lovely doll is a digi image I bought called Birgetti
from C.C. Designs. I used seed beads on the sunflower
and then covered the center with Glossy Accents. Also
used Dot Sparkler Stickers from Stampendous.

Any feedback welcome.
