Mixed Media attempt

There have been so many mixed media projects that i have seen lately that i have fallen in love with that i finally found time to have a play and attempt one myself.
Actually it was a few weeks ago now at the last Crop for a Cause.
I brought this frame awhile ago to use for something else and now it was just hanging around so i thought it was time to have a play and put something in it.
As you all know I LOVE QUOTES.
So i did this up with my favourite quote.My three little girls embossed all the letters for me. It was a little bit of a fight over the heat gun and getting them to share. So they would take it in turn embossing each word. Naturally this ended up taking a bit longer than planned. I had lots of fun using all sort of bits and pieces from a mixture of suppliers like Prima, Websters, Kaiser, Tattered Angels and Ranger.
Anyway I love the end result though it I sit back and look at it again there are probably lots of things i would do differently but for a first attempt Im happy and itching to get my hands dirty again.
