Valentines sketch * Mixed Media * Sweet mail!

Every now and then we have a challenge at the Dutch Freestyle group, make something in a certain style, or.... make a layout using a sketch! That's what we did for Valentines Day.

This is the sketch we used, and we could give our own turn to it!
But when you have little inspiration, you just follow the sketch, and that's what I did! I used an older line of Basic Grey and the school pictures of my two girls!
This weekend I joined a Mixed Media group and oh my gosh, do I love that style of working!
I had to use the new chrystals I got for my birthday, these are not mom's but the ones Anouk bought me, and oh my gosh is that awesome work!
This is what I made! I used a small canvas, glued some music paper on it, put Gesso over it and some red paint. Printed out a Moulin Rouge picture and looked around in my stash, and started having fun! Love how it turned out and I'm afraid I have a new addiction!
Here's another detail of the canvas, an old poem picture and some buttons glued on a doily!
Last but not least, I got some very sweet mail yesterday!

This lovely card I got from my "sis" Jeanet, and I totally love it, thanks girl!

And this lovely Vintage stuff, I got from Jacqueline! A Vintagy looking birthday card, and lots of yummy goodies, old fashioned fabric buttons, velvet flowers, Babushka pictures....but what I like the most is the stamp she sent me!! Maybe you've noticed but I've already used it on the mixed media canvas! Thanks so much girl, you made my day!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
