Don't Let Go

Don't Let Go

This is a bit of a mix up for me as I've not really tried mixed media before.  I didn't really intend to do mixed media it just 'sort of' happened.  I ended up glueing my paper onto some scrap cardboard as until then it did not have the 'structural integrity' to hold up to the sewing and whatnot.

I've had lots of fun playing around with bits and pieces and slapping on paint and mist.  I just sort of went with the flow and saw what happened.  Let me know what you think!

I put the layout together with the help of Colour Stories Inspiration challenge #143 (below)
Scrap it with a Song Pop challenge - Demi Lovato's - Let it Go
I used the title of the song to inspire my title of Don't Let Go
Colour Scheme: All colours used
Evidence: Mixed Media, Pen Work, Cogs and Circles.
Testimony: Handwrite your story

I didn't use the sketch ahove - instead I used the one below from Show Us Your Stuff as inspiration. I rotated the sketch 90 degrees.

Here is a close up

Hope you had fun viewing my layout.
