Mixed Media Page and Flowers Challenge

Hello everybody,

Hope my readers don't mind me posting again so soon ;-).

This time I would like to show you a page I made using white mixed media paper (I prefer this one over normal scrapbooking card because takes inks and paste and so on much better).

There is my page:

I started building my background by applying Golden Modeling Paste over one of Prima Marketing - Poppies collection masks (# 922139), in the area where I planned to put my photo. You can hardly see those on the photo as I sprayed the page with Lime Green Dylusion ink while the paste was still wet. Then I sprayed turquoise ink on the external part of my page and lots of water on the page and left it to dry.

Once the page was dried I applied stamps from Tim Holtz Mixed Media collection around my photo and in the lower left corner. Then I added more Golden paste with brick 6x6 stencil.    

For the frame around my photo I used Sizzix die and cut 3 layers out of my mixed media paper (it is thick paper, but not dense - cuts easily) , then sticked them using Ranger Medium, once dried I painted it with brown paint (Ranger) and brushed over Patina Blue Perfect Perl, 3 layers of the paper + glue and paint gave me a thickness of a chipboard.

The chipboard flourishes in the corners are by Petaloo, I only added some white gesso  over them. White roses, metal flower and stickers are by Prima and blue flowers are from my own production using white hand made mulberry paper and Dylusion inks and my Spellbinder dies.. I might give a tutorial on how I make these if any interest.

I decided to enter this page into  Get Creative - May Challenge. You can find all about their challenge on the blog here. For months of May the challenge is to use flowers on the page ;-) - EASY.

There are some close-ups:

    Unquestionably consider that which you stated. Your favourite justification
    seemed to be at the web the easiest factor to be mindful of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked while other people think about worries that they just don't recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , other folks could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
