New Mixed Media Layout

I grabbed some of the new Dear Lizzy stuff from Paper Issues and finally had time to play with it.  I loved the colors and patterns, especially the pink.  The first thing I just had to do was make a mixed media page so I could add in even more color.  The Mask was perfect for adding some dimension before I painted. I laid the mask on my 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock, then spread out a thin layer of modeling paste over, making sure to fill all the little spots.  After carefully pealing the mask off, I let it dry completely (make sure to carefully wash the mask with warm water immediately).  My favorite Faber Castille gelatos (used like watercolors) and a little misting of Heidi Swapp's gold color shine added just the right amount of color/shimmer to the background.  Then just to layer on some papers, a photo and some stitching to finish it.  45 minutes later I have a beautiful brightly colored page that perfectly represents my vibrant 6 year old.
