It's All About Today

Another excuse to get messy with A Mixed Media Challenge.  This time the colour scheme is yellow, pale pink and peach.

I used acrylics to paint the canvas yellow, white and pale pink, then painted a peachy flower and added some watercolour pencil shading.  The images and text are stamped onto tissue paper then pasted on with watered down PVA glue.  Added a bit of Frantage for texture and Stickles for the fairy wings.
