A Mixed Media 'Dream'

Christmas is over and goodies put to bed for a while at least.
Time to relax and just play  - in my case to use some new goodies.

I didn't know where this project would lead to so just 
went with what took my fancy!
Funny enough I started two projects and nearly
put this one in the bin as I wasn't happy with the background
but came back to it today and pressed on.
The other item landed in the bin.
I started by adding a couple of patches of Sand Paste
then stenciling the background with
texture paste sprayed with 
Tim's Dusty Concord Distress Stain.
Wet my page then added Lindy's Magical's
in Witches Potion Purple/Freaky Franken Lime 
and Nuvo Solar Flare Shimmer Powder.
That is where I left it overnight.
I decided it needed a little more so
stenciled the middle using Nuvo Mousse 
in Aloe Vera then just  kept adding
different coloured mousses
 some Inka Gold and random script.
Inked water colour paper with 
the same Magical's above and
Starburst Spray in Tiffany Lou Blue.
Stamped my butterflies with 
Black Archival ink then heat embossed
in black. Fussy cut them after blinging them up 
with Nuvo Blue Lagoon Crystal Drops. 
Attached some lightly coloured dry wall tape and a 
flourish before adding the butterflies.
Finished with a popped sentiment cut from
MFT die and distressing some of the edges.

A few close ups!

I am going enter this at 
for their current Challenge Here
It's an Anything Goes so the sky's the limit!

Thanks for dropping in today.
Only a few days till the New Year.
Hoping yours will be a Happy Healthy one.
