Well I have been wanting to delve into the world of Mixed Media for a little while.
I have been getting a book ready to alter (wow what a lot of work!) and this week I did my very first page!
Super excited and PROUD :)
(Sorry there is a ton of pictures)


So this piece was inspired by Q&L Challenge.  The words this time are Proud and Vintage. After looking for a quote I liked I found this one by Garth Brooks.  The image is from Whimsy Doodle (I think) from there is just became...
Wood feather - Prima
Paisley is Myan Road
Flower and charm are from Mariam's Crafting Supplies
Paper is MME
Stamp is Flight of the Arrows CTMH D1578
Stencil Color Box
Paint & Glitter Martha Stewart (Thanks Blitsy)

I would also like to enter this project in the following challenges...

LOC- #34 Use Metal
Craft Hoarders Anonymous-  #10 Spray it Ink it, Paint it.
