Pixels and Paper June Challenge; rainy day memories

June inspiration

As soon as I saw this image on the Pixels and Paper blog (which can be found here: )
I knew I had the perfect photo to work with, from a photoshoot I'd done with my daughter a few years ago just after a rainstorm.

I created a mixed-media project with my beloved homemade texture paste, some mist and paint, and bits and pieces from my stash, including Maya Road butterflies, metal pieces and flowers from Prima and Flying Unicorn. I've had that red lace paper for ages and love how eyecatching it is! I painted all the metal, chippies, and flowers grey to match the corrugate efore misting (what a great way to use up weird-coloured or mismatched embellies!!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
