Mixed Media Monday ~ Compliments of the Season

Welcome back to my second installment of Mixed Media Monday.  Today's offering is an early Christmas treat I made, just for you!

I began by tearing the edges from a piece of printed scrapbook paper, adhering it to my journal page using Mixed Media Multi Matte Medium.  

Once that was dry, I brushed on three coats of White Heavy Body Acrylic Paint in the center, leaving enough space around the edges so you can still see the gold print, but still allowing it to fade naturally.
I adhered another piece of die cut scrapbooking paper and then started layering the die cut elements.  The flowers and greens are from Spellbinders Santa Lane Floral Die Cut Shapes, and the cutie little instant ancestors are from Idea-Ology Baseboard Dolls by Tim Holtz.

I used a white gel pen to add details to the centers of the flowers and some of the greens.

I hope you enjoyed today's mixed media project as much as I enjoyed creating it.
May your Christmas season be filled with Peace, Love & JOY!
Thanks for stopping by!
