touch of gold




The Heaven's are rumbling and have opened up  with heaps of rain.๐ŸŒง
Out came my mixed media goodies and play time again today.
My stamps arrived from Chocolate Baroque and  they are
Love the quality of these stamps and have several to use for the next challenge.
I decided to cover the front and back of my Journal. ๐Ÿ“— 
This is a shot of the front and back.
Despite the rain and all, it is still hot here so the 
mediums dried very quickly for me.


Dylusion sprays, mesh, stencils cut out die cuts and even a touch of
my new "Magicals" powder which arrived today.
[a bit like brusho's] and Cosmic Shim 'puffed' onto 
my project.
A shot of the front of my cover, the stamps were coloured
with perfect pearls, fussy cut and placed onto my cover.



This is the fabulous colour challenge over at

Beautiful creation.

Oh, this is eye catching! I think green is a beautiful color, but one that isn't especially easy to work with, in my opinion. Never realized how fantastic it looks with gold. It's beautiful with all this texture.
