The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #12 - May Flowers

Hi Everyone!! Welcome to the May Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!!  This challenge is SO much fun because outside my window are all my new spring and summer flowers!! (and they are still alive and haven't baked in the hot'lanta sun yet!!)  

This month our Sponsor is Stampers Anonymous ... they have an amazing selection of some of the hottest designers products!! I used quite a bit of Wendy Vechhi supplies ... and I know that I can get her goodies at Stampers Anonymous! 

Here is my May Project!!
So I started out with a scrap of wood!!  It is actually about 2 feet tall!! 

I gesso'ed it and painted the wood!
I also used gesso to stamp on the butterfly and background stamps.
Then I started the flowers with Wendy Vecchi art parts!  Love using these because they are SO strong and really manage to hold up to whatever I can put on them!

I embossed the art parts with a couple layers of WOW embossing glitter!

And then I assembled the flowers! I wanted to use the green tissue paper but it was a little too thin.  I used matte medium and glued the green to scrapbook paper! I love the way the pattern shows through the tissue paper, but I got to keep the green color!! 

I assembled the pieces!
Doodles and a topcoat of matte medium and she is done!!

So now .... hop on over to the  Mixed Media Monthly challenge blog and join in with us!! I promise you will be glad you took the challenge!!
