Mixed Media Heart Wreath

The other day I was talking to two good friends in different time abt how I hate working with the color pink. which I really do avoid using pink in my work. I just feel it is too girly and I dont know how to handle it haha

So I took it in my heart and kind of want to challenge myself for a change.

maybe the universe decided it is the time and I found some realllly gorgeously beautiful silk flowers in my craft store yesterday after finishing my workshop. And I just took them home and planned this on my way home.

I used a Prima resin frame as the base, then surrounded the whole frame with some dried moss and then added flowers on the top. The silk flowers look just like the real ones and they have many petal layers. created such beautiful elegant shape as a wreath.

After gluing them to the canvas, I started using Lindy's gang sprays Alpine Ice Rose to add on the background and the stenciled part. After that I put some lightly touch of  Poppin' pink, then combined Magical shaker Oom Pah Pah Pink and Cuckoo Clock Cardinal to different area.

Then I started using the brand new Finnabair Texture fantasy Purple to add more accents to the piece.


 Cannot forget some sparkles !!

This is also to enter for the July challenge in Mixed Media Place.
Summer is the peak season in my craft store to prepare for the wedding ceremony and party, thus a lot of new flowers, decorations are being loaded to the shelves. This moodboard is exactly how July is for me and one of my greatest element in my craft life

I believe I have created a beautiful piece. Dont you think ?
I hope this inspires you too
