So delightful?

This picture was taken by DH when DD had picked some flowers in our garden. He thought she looked so cute when she came back with all those flowers in her arms so he ran after the camera. And she does look delightful in this picture.  :) But… in fact she is using one of the peonies as a gun… That’s the reason why I put a question mark in the title. And, as I’m writing in my journaling – that’s the way she is – a lovely mix!
This LO is made for a sketch challenge at Veckans nya skiss #23.

There’s a lot of mixed media on this one. In fact it’s all made of a white cardstock, ink, modeling paste and acrylic paint – except for the background paper from October Afternoon.
Here’s some close ups:

Do I have to mention I had a lot of fun? ;) The funniest part is that you can try whatever you like. If you don’t like the outcome you can probably fix it with another layer of paint. Or you can throw it away because it’s nothing expensive – just a bit of a cardstock and some paint!
Hope you enjoyed this!!! Take care!!
