If you want to be happy Be!

Hi everyone!
                  Today, I am representing a mixed media creation. There is a new mini challenge started at and I love the concept and so much inspired by all talented designers work!!!
Here is my creation:
          For this creation, I want the vintage shabby look, so I chose brown and white color theme! I selected some vintage look papers and distressed them all around the edges, gessoed them. And randomly stamped some wall texture in jet black archival ink. I love new Sizzix mixed media die, it's so versatile and die cut my first mat layer.

I choose a tag from the same paper pack and clear gloss it 5 times and Wow, what a tremendous crackled layered I got and distressed it! Then on a piece of paper I stamped the sentiment in metallic look and clear embossed it.
I recently won a Follower goodie package from More than word challenge( thank you so much Valia for the awesome goodies) and I used one of the white clay ornate! I applied a heavy layer of gesso on it and then applied gold alcohol ink and some acrylic paints on it for shine. added some microbeads and adhere the sentiment.

 Made some handmade flowers from corrugated and texture sheet and some are gifted flowers, applied some gesso at the edges of flowers and arranged them on my mat.
 Before finalizing all the things, I also added a 1mm chipboard peeking from the die cut. Firstly I gesso it and applied some gelatos and then applied some crackle paste and randomly applied distress Vintage photo ink. And embellished it with some leaf charms, die cut leaves, swirls, sticker sentiment BE You, half gold pearls, pollens, a cream colored gorgeous ribbon bow and a butterfly.
 One more final look:
Hope you like this creation!
