Pin up mixed media profile- thankfulness

The other day I watched this video by my crafting friend Eniat  Kessler.
She made a mixed media canvas using her profile. Today when I saw the mixed media challenge was to use a magazine silhouette to make a mask, I decide to use my own profile to make my project. I had my husband take my photo because it was difficult to get a profile selfie.

I printed my photo and cut it out to make my mask. I held the mask in place with painters tape. I used my SU itty bitty backgrounds stamp and white paint to go over the purple. I sprayed gold shimmer over the paper. When it dried I pulled up the mask. I added quilled roses made of encyclopedia pages. I also added pearls and baby's breath. I used one of my all time favorite butterflies. It was by my stamping friend Laura, LAYERS OF COLOR. I stamped it on white cardstock and cut it out and shaped it. The white was too stark so I sprayed it with some of the gold shimmer spray.I added some musical stickers. They are from FAB SCRAPS -Victoria Clear Stickers. I used an alphabet set to stamp the things that are important to me... God, Family, Friends, Music, Art... I thought afterwards that I should have added food and my computer but it was too late. I added gold webbing lace and pearl stick pins in the right corners. I added pewter brads in the corners. I also added a strip of lace.
