Love Being a Mom - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Good morning!
When I was in kindergarten my teacher asked me  what I wanted to be when I grew up, I replied 'A mom'  That's all I really ever wanted to be.

My boys mean the absolute world to me!

I started by covering both sides of my paper with clear gesso.

I stamped the images from the Words & Layers stamp set with white ink.

I then used the Make Your Mark stencil with texture paste that I mixed with brown brusho powder

I used Turquoise blue from the watercolor palette to cover the stenciled images and when it rain into the white it created a really cool messy overlay image.

The really cool epoxy piece my husband created for me using a mold.  I then covered it with the turquoise blue and Prussian blue from the watercolor set 

 I die cut 3 tags using the Planner Essential 26 set the layered them using cardboard to add height and dimension.
I also die cut two flowers from the Planner Essentials 25 using Rinea foil paper

I stamped the words from the Word & Layers stamp as my title

I die cut the Mandala also from foil paper.
I wanted the flowers to match my colors so I used the watercolor paints on my flowers.

I added some beads, art stones and sequins to finish my project.

Thank you so much for stopping by

I am entering this in the Paper Issues May Mom challenge
and the Challenge YOUrself May challenge
