Mix it Monthly go Maps !

Mix it Monthly are challenging us to use maps in our works, plus they have given a colour palette to work from as well.  This month its Grey, Burnt Sienna,  Black, Pale Pink and Rose Pink.  Our hostess is the fab artist Piarom.

Products used:   Gesso, Map, Stencil, Distress Inks, Acrylic Paints, Pastel Pencils and a variety of stamps. This was a page that came together easily, which certainly makes a change, although originally she was going to be a fairy postwoman............... lol

Thank you for popping in.  Wishing you a lovely week.  Hugs Annette x
