Post 260: Mixed Media Layout- Mindfulness

Hi friends :)

I'm sharing a Mixed Media Layout titled Mindfulness today. This was made as part of a Guest Design Post over on the Craftreat Blog using their beautiful stencils. You can check out all the projects and details here

Wanted it to be about one's spiritual journey, meditation and finding one's inner self. Basically used acrylic paints to create the stencil designs and then did watercoloring for the background. Added gauze, sequins and mini beads for texture. Stamped the sentiments with archival ink. Finished off with some white splatter. 

List of Supplies:
Craftreat Stencils- Buddha, Lotus Mandala, Mandala
Stamplorations Stamp- Noteworthy 2 Shery Russ Designs, True North
Prima's soft matte gel and heavy white gesso 
Ranger's Archival Inkpad- Jet black
Acrylic Paints
Local Pigment powders
Papericious Spritz Sprays- Ocean Mist, Deep Teal, Bamboo 
Gansai Tambi Watercolors 
Tim Holtz Ideaology Chit Chat Stickers 
Blending Foams 
Glitter Stickers 
Mini Beads

Here are a few close-up photos of the layout:
