A mixed media layout for 13arts!

Hi everyone! 

Today is my day up at the 13arts blog. 

I am sharing a layout I created about my little baby Sofia, who has beautiful cheeks that I truly DO kiss all day long. Funny thing is..she doesn't complain! She just sits there LOL!

"Chubby Cheeks"

I have used a number of 13arts Ayeeda mediums here on this page and below is an image showing you just how I put Ayeeda's products to use :) 

I would like to give credit to Nine, whose tutorial on an amazing background effect was the inspiration for what you see here behind the photo. Nine taught an online tutorial I had the privilege of watching and I was really motivated to use a large black title like that and strips of  water colour paper behind my photo and treating them with some 13arts paints, inks, and mists!

Now here are some close ups..
