I am thrilled to be here today as
for The July Mixed Media Challenge for which the theme is:
Here is my take:
Mixed media is not my usual style, so I immersed myself into looking at lots of inspiration pieces to come up with something wonderful for this exciting GD opportunity. I loved it because it really pushed me out of my comfort zone.
To begin the creative process, I reached for my box of "cool things that I can use on a card someday". I came upon this fabulous tag that I saved from a cross body bag that I bought in late winter in a little boutique on Long Beach Island in New Jersey. The designer is Spartina449.
This is the tag:
It was the perfect piece to start with. I added things here and there until I was happy with my panel.
I am also linking my project to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Inspiration Board.
