This is Karen, back with another Mixed Media with Karen. This month, I was inspired by the lovely hot air balloons in the new Find Your Wings and Fly line. The first thing I did was to take the Sky's the Limit paper and trace one of the balloons onto paper. I didn't worry about making it a super-meticulous job as you can see.
I then used No Limit, Labeled, Floral, and Flowers for You papers, to create my very own hot air balloon.
I then stitched like a madwoman to make sure it really looked like a hot air balloon. I added a few chipboard embellishments and some enamel dots. I then used the sticker accessories and Alpha/Word stickers to put my message on the bottom of the page and stitched all around and this is what I had.
I was finally ready to glue it on to my gratitude journal and add my favorite step: paint. Once I had my way with adding as much paint as I wanted all around, this is what my page ended up with:
Isn't it that much happier with paint?Here are some closeups where you can see that I also used some of the beautiful stamps just to add some texture to my page:

Thank you for letting me share yet another page. See you next month and remember to always dream big!
