Pure Bliss- 13 Arts Challenge #9

Here is the layout I created for this month's challenge at the 13 Arts Blog.

Here is Challenge #9
- Create any project using 3 colors from the palette. You can add neutral colors: white, gray and black
- use minimum two mediums (inks, mists, etc.)
- use any stencil in minimum two different ways (for example by using ink, mists, modeling paste or gesso, drawing shapes etc.)

As a background I used the "Natural Beauty" paper from the Faces of Spring collection. I wanted to have a neutral background so I can add all my mixed media on top.

I started by masking some chevrons with the 13 Arts gesso and some flowers with modeling paste. Then I stamped some images with archival ink. Finally I sprayed and colored with 13 Arts yellow and orange pearl sprays and adding 13 Arts Pink Ink.

Finally I embellished with lots of flowers to match the flowers on my daughter's dress.
