Enjoy the Journey

Happy Mixed Media Monday to ya, Norma here with you today!!

I really love painting so I decided to take the beautiful new June Nesting Components kit and paint it up!!

This is an 11" x 14" canvas and everything on it came from my Nesting Components kit except for the canvas, paints and oil pastels.

I started out by adhering several sheets of the Hope Chest papers then I drew the outline of my focal image. 

With the base done, I turned my focus to building up texture with paints, inks and oil pastels.  When working on a project like this, keep in mind that there are no rules.  The amount of layers you apply is totally up to you, so add a much or as little as you'd like.

I used a few of the paper goods tags for added texture and drew the flowers on with oil pastels.

I had a little transfer fun with one of the clip are images.

These sweet little family of birds needed somewhere to perch :D

Oh and the star of my piece!!  Her hat and dress are paper pieced with more of the Hope Chest sheets.  I also used the stamps for more texture.

Even the sides got a little PWP stamping love!!

Thank you so much for joining me today and remember to 
"Enjoy the Journey"!!
