Hi bloggers

I was browsing the net the other day (as you do) and I came across a challenge blog I hadn't seen or heard of before
It is a Mixed Media challenge blog and everything I have been looking for in a challenge blog.
This months Theme is
and let me tell you the DT creations are so inspirational
(ok after you have finished reading this post preferably lol)

Here is my project made for this challenge

8x8 piece of greyboard
Wooden Word 'Dream'
Tissue Paper
Black Acrylic Paint
Treasure gold gilding waxes
Tim Holtz Dies
Grungeboard & Grunge Paper
Flitter Glue and Mega Flakes
Metal Butterfly
Mod Podge
Other Glue
Metal Book Corners

I intend on adding a 2016 mini calendar in the bottom right hand corner but not just yet cos I want to have it on display now

As this is the first mixed media project I have done in so long I must admit I thoroughly enjoyed every minute making this and am looking forward to creating more pieces like it - I feel like I have come home again in the world of crafting.

As always I fully appreciate any and all feedback, including hints/tips/suggestions.
Please be kind and leave a comment for me as I enjoy reading them also feel free to become a follower.
