Hi,friends. Happy Saturday!
This week the challenge at Our Creative Corner is hosted
by Lisa Minckler and the theme is Party Like It's Mardi Gras!
-- Create any project using the inspirational photo below.
Please explain what about this image inspired your creation.
I was inspired by the color scheme in the photo and
made an art journal page. Here is what I come up with .

The background was painted with acrylic paints and watercolors.
The banner was made from soft matel the flower was made from diecut
acetate.  Then I covered most embellishments and whole
background with glitter.
I link my page to Paint Party Friday.
