Secret Message!

Hello Paper friends! 
I'm so happy to share with you my latest creation.
I just love working on challenges.
I'll be entering this one into the Berry71Blue and Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo March challenges. 

The layout fits perfectly into both. I've added lots of close-ups.

I first started with clear gesso on both sides of the paper. Once that was dry I got out a couple of UmWOw stencils . I used Modelling paste on the Pods Stencil and Gold Crackle Paste on the Brick Stencil. I used an assortment Prima Marketing Color Bloom colors (Yellow Mustard, Worn Leather, Empress Gold, Tea Stain) and 13@rts Splash inks (Yellow, Bronze, Gold, Silver) for more background work.

Once I was happy with the background I placed my pictures and started assembling the rest of the page. Using some Prima flowers from various collections. 

Using UmWOw chipboard (Writer's Block Mash, Doodle Mash), Prima Metal Elements and SIIC.

Once all the elements were in place I went over it again with the Color Blooms and the Splash-Inks. As a final touch some word stickers and we're all done!

I had so much fun making this layout! Loving using all these Mixed Media.
