Happy Mixed Media Monday friends! Today's mixed media offering was made in my Garden Journal. I enjoy working outside in my flower gardens, getting my hands dirty and while it's still too cold and frozen to do so here on the east coast, I can continue playing with paper flowers inside where it's always sunny and warm.
The Garden Journal is a handmade book that I made a few months ago and my plan is to keep all the entries garden themed, while my Create Happiness art journal is all about God's Word and His promises.
I did quite a bit of inking on the background using DOX inks, stamping background images using stamps from the Create Happiness line of clear stamps. I recently purchased some Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish and thought I'd give it a try on this page.
You can see the gilding polish better in this close up photo above the ticket. I love the sheen it gives, and the fact that it looks aged is a bonus. The die cut frame, flowers and ticket are all from the Curators Botanical collection from 49 & Market. I added more stamping using Sign Here Stamps from Spellbinders Flea Market Finds collection.
The image of the boots and flowers is a free printable that I found years ago online.
Here's a list of products I used today:

Thanks so much for joining me today. If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear from you.
