Peaceful for Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge

Hey Everyone

This month on Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge Blog my project is a photo of Erskine Falls in Lorne that my son in law took while they were away with friends
It just looks so peaceful

I used some Kraft cardstock and gave it a coat of clear gesso so that any mixed media products would stay their true colour 

I decided to use three different Distress Oxides - Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss 
So I rubbed each of them on my heat matt sprayed a little water and took some plastic to dab around the cardstock - drying in-between each colour

 I used some 3D Matte Gel through a Memory Maze Stencil  Memory Maze River Pebble Stencil

I added some muslin behind the photo then used some Sticky Notes from Flutteryby Designs

Then I embellished a little with some metal leaves and a bird

Thank you for visiting I hope you come back soon x
