Hello again!
As you know I have been playing around with mixed media. I joined up with  Limor mixed media group on facebook. She  posts a challenge each month. For this month of Aug the challenge is to make a sunset or a beautiful sky using at least 1 Faber Castell - Design memory craft product.

Here is my creation
I started off with one layer of gesso on my page. I then used Gelatos to create the sunset. The Gelatos is a wonderful product. They are like a creamy water colour crayon. I scribbled on the paper, then spritzed water onto the scribbles, and then I used my fingers to smear. Pretty much like fingerpainting lol.  Very easy and fun to use!
The butterfly was cut from grunge paper then colured in using the Gelatos. After stamping the leaves with black Archival ink, I coloured them in using the black gelato crayon and a bit of water on a brush.
For the border I  used distess black soot ink along with a piece of punchinello ribbon that a friend had sent me.
Once all the inking and colouring was done, I decided to give the page a bit of glitter. I used the lindy stamp gang spray and gave the page a few sprits. Oops I forgot what colour I used. I will post it here as soon as I figure it out.

After looking at my work I felt calm. That is how I came up with my title. I printed the title and words using the stampers Big Brush Pen I love this pen!
Hope you enjoy :)
