Don't you feel like the wind is always howling, Don't it seem like there's never any light...

Hi y'all! How is everybody today? I was doing a little experimenting last night and decided to create a canvas. Be gentle...this is my very first collage-mixed media-ish piece.

I started with a 5x7 canvas and Roses Among Us from Stamping Bella. The roses didn't stamp well on the canvas, and I didn't have any tissue paper, so I went with some vintage book print instead. I scribbled some Gelatos on the stamp, added some water, and then stamped!

The rest was covered with a combination of acrylic paints, Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint, and a little corrugated cardboard. Again...I had no idea what I was doing! But the glittery heart looked good, so I threw that on there as well. Some stickles on the flowers, and a handwritten sentiment finished it off. I made a huge mess, but I sure had fun! I hope you like it.

Oh noooo not you too! I'm petrified to give mixed media a try but you guys make it look so easy! And your creation is so purty! I love the glittery heart!

I would have done a 2x2 canvas cause I am wimpy-what a brave girl to jump in. I should just "go for it".
