I have been playing around with mixed media and used Sherri's new  Craft with Sherri Baldy and The Besties Paper Pack and it is Pink! Pink! Pink!   I love this paper pack.     

I applied some Gesso in the area around where I was going to place the focal image in order to prep the paper.    I then applied some cheesecloth  with modge podge.   
the cheesecloth and area Gesso  was sprayed with some rose colored 
colored  spritzer.   

I embellished with some  gorgeous flowers.   
I hand cut the leaves.  
Sea shells ere added to coordinate with the theme.  

Thank you for stopping by. 
Stay Happy, Healthy and Create something new every day!

  3. What an adorable image Maire.. Gorgeous colors and coloring. I can't wait for Spring to get here. We still have snow every where.

  4. Love the sassiness of this card. The image is colored to perfection as usual but I think what puts it over the top are all the wonderful embellishments. Excellent job!

  5. She is so so sweet and beautifully coloured, a gorgeous design.
