Hope...My first Mixed Media Project

This evening after I had my coffee...I still couldn't get that Kraken out of my is just "not me."  
I had an idea....I had just bought some watercolor crayons to try
and decided that I would try something fun.
I sketched a simple angel.  Then transferred it onto 
my canvas.  Used my Crayola doodle some
roses on the "background"
So the blue is a wax crayon...and the green is a watercolor crayon.  So once you are done just use some water...and wah lah...LOL
After I applied all my watercolors....I let them dry.  Then I used acrylic paint to go back in and do some shading.  I used the stamps I carved to add some design too.
Here you can see the crayon showing through the green...and the swirls in the hair...are crayon too.  How fun is that?  Simple face...because I didn't wan to have to look for paint colors...I just used what was with in reach...(lazy I tell you).  
This dress started out as plain ivory cardstock.  I stamped with Stazon ink in black.  I also used a white crayon and did some swirls (you can just make them out).  I then inked the whole thing in Fired brick by Ranger.  The whole piece has been antiqued.  I then added some Dew Drop Brilliance and Perfect pearls.  Just the right amount of glitz!
Here you can see one of the crayon roses too...and my "Hope' Charm.  I also did some random stamping...LOL.
Here is a shot of it on my Red Room this shot you can see the perfect pearls and Brilliance quite well.
One last "normal" shot
