She Who Leaves a Trail of Glitter

I was inspired to create a card with two challenges in the back of my head.  One was to use a stencil (inspired by a challenge at StampNation), and the other was to create something layered with mixed media for the Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media  challenge.  

This is not super mixed media, but I decided to explore the layering effects from distress oxides, and then to layer some glass glitter bead gel over the top.  I love how the oxides layer, rather than blend.  And the glitter bead gel over the top is such a great effect. 


Again, perhaps not super mixed media, but fun to explore the layering with some mixed media products.

I hope you find some time to create today.
