Mixed Media Birthday

Hello friends, how has your week going so far?  I decided to take a break from deadlines and 'play'.  Often when the household is in bed I can be found in The Studio, watching a good forensic show/ or murder and creating - I have used product lying on my desk - yet another attempt at cleaning - it is much more fun this way! LOL!

I have used the Spellbinders Mary Border Strip as my focal point.  My background paper is very special - it is handmade - a pack was given to everyone at the first Australian Mixed Media Roadshow by a lovely lady and artist Carol Cantrell. have sponged using Imagine Inks, stamped using various background images and splotched using Imagine Texture Sprays - it was a whole lot of fun - almost like therapy!!

The embellishment is handmade and coloured using Imagine Radiant Neon Inks.  I have also used  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner, 3D Foam Squares - my 'go to' adhesives.
