You Are Special

Spring officially has arrived, but if you step outside here it definitely still feels like winter.  We had a little bit of snow in the wee hours of the morning and it is very windy.  A good day to stay inside and have a little creative time.  I just finished up this layout and love the finished look.  I stretched out of my comfort zone and went a little paint and mist crazy here.  I used sketch #56 at Keeping the Best along with 13 Arts Challenge #5 hosted by Agnieszka, where you are to incorporate a minimum of 5 handmade flowers, stitching and the colors pink and turquoise.
My background paper is from 13 Arts Frosted Life Collection.  
I layered on lots of paint, modeling paste and mists, some rub ons from my stash, 
along with some stamping.

I punched out several pieces of tissue paper and layered them to make my homemade flowers.

Nothing like my trusty sewing machine to add some stitching to my circles.

I'll be back tomorrow to share my project for Berry71bleu's paint challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
