Be Brave-Be the best version of yourself

Howdy Bloggers , Lisa Here with a Friday Mixed Media update .
Its been a crazy few weeks of family commitments and heart connections.
Today I'm sharing a layout that I started a couple of weeks ago but only finished up yesterday.
Sometimes just having completed a background prior can allow you so much more flow,
to bust in and get that baby done swiftly.
So my eldest child has just had some new professional shots taken,
(she's a professional wrestler-if you didn't know already)
and I really couldn't wait to get my hands on them and scrap them,
She's such a wonderful kid,she actually printed them for me -yay.
Knowing the colours she was in , and celebrating my love of her passion,
Dylusions Bubblegum Pink acrylic paint provided a perfect vibrant base for my vibrant girls photo.
I laid a Heidi Swapp word "wish" stencil onto the wet painted  Marshmallow cardstock page
 and used a baby wipe to rub back some paint,to reveal the words
 and then I smeared some Colourblast "Lipstick"Texture paste through the stencil. 
while it was wet I embossed the lettering with some
 Stampendeous Chunky Black Embossing Enamel powder.. Swoon at the effect .
Once the background is complete a little cosmetic fun takes place,
I didn't used any background stamps on this one as I usually would ,
 but I added an extra element by rough doodling and
 writing a few sentimental words with my Fude Balll pen,
 to add interest point and tell the story .
Layering of tissue paper, chippy, muslin, and whatever else I have laying on the table ,
 adds texture and colour behind the black matt photo
*note to self --wipe layout/photos free of dust before taking DT blog photos.
a couple Me and My big Idea chippy pieces, a gold flourish from Jollygirl, 
various lettering and this layout was finished .
Love the vibrancy of the page and the subject .
 Thanks for dropping by,
 Ill be back next week with another vibrant colourful mixed media update .
