Play Often Layout {My Creative Scrapbook Mixed Media Team}

Hi Everyone!  Happy Hump Day!!  Here's my 2nd layout 
created for My Creative Scrapbook Mixed Media Team HERE.

I started with this sheet of paper below {the B side that has
the pale house prints and text design} then used inks and
stencils to create the mixed media look to the base paper.

Once I'd misted over the Butterfly stencil that I just placed in
random different positions on my page I also used the grid stencil
with some modeling paste to add some texture too. 

I raised up the Webster's Pages sentiment sticker on a strip of box
cardboard for a 3D effect & opened up some of the Prima bud
flowers.  I inked up the big flower again & used some Prima
 packaging underneath my cluster.

I used Liquid Pearls again, around my main butterfly design
as well as my photograph & hand-journaled a message to my kids.

I also used texture paste over the grid stamp on the 
Maya Road Linen heart from the Mixed Media kit & tucked 
it in behind my photo, together with some inked & distressed 
layers of Webster's Pages papers.

Lots of lovely layers!

I made a little bunting flag out of the Prima packaging wrapped
around a tooth pick (see it there just above the cluster).

These kits are super easy to use because the contents 
are just dreamy!  Order yours HERE .

This is fabulous ! What's the difference between modeling paste and texture paste ? Not the same ?
I really love the superposition of the different patterns in different colors !
