Mixed media layout 'Little moments of Magic'

 
Here is a new, mixed media layout I made yesterday. I got this idea after seeing the beautiful moodboard from Anything but cute - Mixed media Challenges #4 August -Making Magic and I would like to enter this  12 x 12 page for the challenge.
 
I started with the picture, I made it last month from my daughter, you can't see it in the picture, but she has real feathered wings on her back...For me this is a really magical picture. The title is inspired on the fact that, every day, I find those little moments of magic, joy and thankfulness of being a mom and seeing my daughter growing up.
 
I used the colors from the moodboard, and went nuts on shimmering Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays (they are so magical!)
 
 My background is made out of black cardstock, white gesso, modelling paste in combination with stencils, and lots of sprays. I added shimmering sequins and beautiful, shimmering glass beads, wich are a gift from my sweet aunt from Amsterdam ( I got hundreds of little bags in all different shades and colors, such a huge gift!)
 
My chipboard pieces are painted with gesso and inka gold in the colors gold and green. I highlighted the metal embellishments with some inka gold (Oldgold)
 
Here are some close up pictures and the moodboard:

  11. I'm not sure where to begin with how much I love this - I'm so honoured for starters that you completely took my mood board and made something so inspiring fro it yourself. This page is breathtaking and I'm so captivated by these colours and the sparkle (probably why I love fairytales), the layout is gorgeous and being someone who loves to scrapbook, I can appreciate all the effort that would have gone into making this - so a huge thank you! Lastly but certainly not least, a beautiful picture of your daughter!
