Windows to my world

                            Windows to my world

Welcome to my world all!  I have been hoarding these gorgeous neutral toned papers for a very long time just waiting for the perfect inspiration.  Creative Embellishments  have these window Chipboard pieces and inspiration struck.  I love my daughters including the four legged variety, nature and adventure but most of all family.  These are the things that inspire me.  More about the pictures are written on the back. 

 Here are some close ups of the mixed media treatment I did on this page which include stamping, painting, distressing etc.

 This beautiful pink flower vine adds just the right amount of color to pick up pieces of color in the photos.  It also gives the unexpected element found in nature. 

 Tucked into the layers are little nests made of cheese clothe that I sopped up the residual paint with from the windows and paint palette.  I sprinkled some colored beads for added texture and hint of pink color into the nests.

Here you can see the window titles (7 Dots Studio, Ninth Wave stickers) which read "family together forever".
Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you as a follower one day soon.
