Without further delay I am proud to present my  creation using  Coffee & Muse - May 2013 Mixed Media Kit :

The Mixed Media Kit comes with everything you see here - excluding the Scrap FX chicken wire and the Kaisercraft Frame from my stash. 

The crackle effect and the lumps was done using the  Creative Shimmer and  using my heat  gun over and over.....  I sprayed everything first with the DYLUSIONS SPRAY-VIBRANT TURQUOISE and  highlighted using DYLUSIONS SPRAY—WHITE LINEN .... once everything was glued and down I masked the clip art angel with wax paper and  went  to town with the   two sprays again covering  everything  including my hands and nails ...  ( it was a hot fun mess) 

Some of the flowers are covered with the creative shimmer- which the picture does not  reveal but  up close and personal they look shiny and  almost a plastic like effect which is really awesome! 

The tulle included in the kit- it adds a great dimension not only as a bow but cut and  tucked here and  there and then spraying it some more ...  
I loved adding the Flying Unicorn Adornments and spraying them with several layers of mist so that they  blend into the  cover ...

A Great Big thank-you for participating in our Coffee & Muse Hop.
