My (Marivic) projects for June with a few of my favorite things

Hello this is Marivic sharing with you today a couple of projects I made using Donna Salazar's GCD Studios  Mixed Media Stax 2. I love this product so much I made 2 projects also following Denise and Norma's theme for this month's Favorite Things Challenge.

First I made this journal. I was going to keep this one but my daughter, Alyssa had asked me if she can have it so she can draw her favorite things...I was going to keep it for myself but she said she wants to keep practicing her art so she can be just like mama. Now, how can I say no to that...I told her I have to remove the embellishments, little girls can't have the "blings" yet. So she agreed that I can take the metal charms off and replace it with kid-friendly embellishments after the photos are taken.
Other than Donna's Mixed Media papers, everything else were from Zeus and Zoe Kit.

I took photos from my phone as I go to the progress of making the album pages. The rest is just embellishments.

After I am done, I covered the pages with lace and just went to town with the embellishments.
The flowers I also made using the smooth mixed media paper that is part of the stax.

The flowers are tedious to make, but it worth it. I hand-cut the shapes, painted with Luminarte Paint on both sides.
When it was dry I applied Faber Castell Glaze twice and glued to make this flower.

For my second project I made this canvas art using the printed paper, smooth paper, and the textured paper from the same Donna Salazar Mixed Media Paper Stack line.

I liked the antique color of the flowers...

These are all my favorite, flowers, lace, mixed media, and pretty little things that make up a big beautiful things.
