TAKE FLIGHT WITH ME...playing with inks

hello all
hoping you guys had a fabulous mother day.
i spent mine in a flower garden i am working on and then out for dinner.
it was a beautiful day.

today i want to share with you this journal cover i made using some of  lindy's stamp gang sprays.  this is my second time using them i love them. i love the colors and how they spray. i also like that they come in powder form and you  get to mix them at home. i felt like an alchemist, lol.

 Take Flight with Me
BY FLOWERDISCO FOR NANIKEOLA MIXED MEDIA USING LINDY'S STAMP GANG INKS (3)
i used the "starburst" set sprays from lindy's:  tibetan poppy teal, ponderosa pine olives and autumn maple crimson.
i think these are my favorites from the starburst set.

the sticker that i chose for my project's title comes from the nature walk collection from 7dots (another love of mine).

i also used the same "spring" stamp set from the paper wings productions i used on the mini for the hop.
"and i think to myself, what a wonderful world"
think about it...this small phrase has a huge meaning. love it too.

the stencil used was pre-cut with my cricut expression and i used some white pigment ink with it.
i also used some foam stamps for the word "me" and used the same white pigment ink. i then outline the word with a black ink zig pen.

the "with" mini alpha stickers are from glitz.

above you can see the "music" stamp, some white splashes done with gesso, some clear embossing powder and the
if i might say, beautiful flower  i embellished with stickles, gesso and some of the spray inks.

you also can see some zigzag stitching.

here you can see the entire finished cover.
this was really a lot of fun.
and....i know i said i would leave the mixed media to my teammates but i got curious and decided to give it a try.
no regrets.
