Post 236: Mixed Media Layout- Delight in the Little Things

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a Mixed Media Layout titled "Delight in the Little Things" today. The picture is of a cup of hot coffee with biscotti :) how yummy is that? so I thought I would make a layout about it, I'm a huge foodie and enjoy indulging in many tasty delights, almond biscotti is one of my favorites, what about you? I've done watercoloring with sprays here and added gold acrylic for highlighting. The chipboards were heat embossed to give a shiny look. Background stamping and stenciling was done to create interest. Layers and textures have been added using die cuts, chipboards and threads. Ink splatter was created at the end.

Here are a few closeup photos of the layout:
