Fly away negativity..mixed media monday "wings"




Had a go with embossing powder today after seeing a tutorial by Hels. When I have previously tried embossing the powder goes all over the place so this time I heated the card from underneath and it was a lot neater..thanks to Linda for that tip! I wanted my heart to look grungy so rubbed away some of the powder. Have added paints, pastels, charcaol and some stamped images to the background. The words read "Let your imagination soar fly away negativity". I put it on the front cover of a little notebook that I got today from Paper Artsy. The winged heart stamp is from Lost Coast. I have photographed the notebook cover next to my old mug (the words "Iechyd da" mean good health in Welsh..which is funny as it is full of coffee and baileys at the moment for my backache!)
