Here is my creation:
This is a wall hanging for my pink lovin girlie-girl

 I started with a 6 x 12" canvas. I layered old book pages and patterned papers and sealed them with modge podge.  I let it dry overnight (actually 2) before I used the texture paste with a stencil. I also at this point added the texture paste to a large wooden heart for even more dimension.
After the texture paste dried (about 2- hours) I used the spray mists and drizzled the blue, green and pink ink down the canvas and heart.  I used Heidi Swapp mists which were a little too intense for this project so I added a few sprays of water to help mute the colors and make them run a little.
I let the mist and water dry completely and then added her name and the flowers. I stamped on the smaller heart!

Well, I hope this sparks a little creativity if you haven't gotten started yet!! Remember to link your creations on the original post HERE!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!!
