Dabbling in Mixed Media

Right now I am here with these guys...... relaxing and crafting the day away

I was scrolling through my facebook feed when I came across this challenge by the Mixed Media Place
The challenge immediately appealed to me as this holiday has a very special place in my heart. There is nothing better than being close to the shore and for 2 weeks each year we are lucky enough to able to spend time here.
I found this shell on the beach this morning and when it was opened looked just like the shape of a heart. The title of the song by Sting -  Shape of my heart, its kinda how I feel about it here.
I havn't dabbled a great deal in Mixed Media, I don't know why because I really enjoy it!
I just love how this turned out!
I didn't do anything to the shells themselves apart from a coating of decoupage glue, they have this lovely gold sheen to them. I embossed the heart shape that I drew and pressed the shells into it.
I used lots of different mists and some wax pastel crayons that I didn't even realise I had until I was clearing out my craftroom for the big refit.
I hope you like my take on the challenge
