Mixed Media in Ombre Dreams!

Hello, everyone!
Good Afternoon!

This time I am sharing a Mixed Media Canvas Layout.
I am so impressed and excited to participate in More Than World Challenge where the
 Word Inspiration - CHANGE
Creative Challenge - OMBRE and also joining in The Hop to Stop, raising awareness for victims of domestic violence hosted by Becca Cruger

"Colours are the greatest medium for the expression of feelings. The Purple and Pink Ombre hue are to signify the positive vibes, the dreams and life itself. My motto is to live life simply with happiness and positive energy.
Change is a vital part of life but family is one thing constant in life. The Mumma bird and her kids depict the joy of living together! A love that never changed! Happy Happy!!!"

Of course, it needed to colours come alive and Color Bursts were just the things! Love the flow of colours on this LO!

         Firstly, I gave my canvas a coat of thick gesso and from all sides too. Now mist the canvas with water and sprinkle a few colour bursts powder to create my background and used a baby wipe to create a pattern at the bottom. Some stamping to create  floral BG and created some stems using Gelatos. I have chosen a gorgeous purple watercolour PP which perfectly match for the LO, you can clearly see in the pic!
Now roughly created the pattern on my canvas.

This cute Bird Family chippie is heavy gesso first , coloured them with gelatos and applied sparkle dots on the branch.

The purple flowers are handmade using Heartfelt creations die with foam and papers, Aren't they gorgeous! And combined with some Prima flowers too.

See the gloss on the Life quote using clear embossing powder and Love the opal Magic acrylic paint for this gorgeous metal butterfly!

I rub some old gold and opal magic acrylic paint on this cute birdcage for more shine.

Hope you enjoyed this Mixed Media Layout with full os life and Happiness!
Thanks for stopping by and Have a great weekend!
