Challenge #139 - Mixed Media (using more than 1 media on you project)

Thank you to everyone who entered our Photo Inspiration challenge.  It really is a pleasure to peruse your creations and to see everyone interpretation of the theme.  As usual the Winner and DT Favourites will be announced next week so become a follower and you won't miss the post.

This challenge we are sponsored by the lovely Lizzy Love from
Lizzy has always loved the stranger, quirkier side of life and that is exactly what she loves to create. Her art described as a perfect combination of sweet and sour that glitters up the grunge! As a lover of all things whimsical, kawaii and creepy cute, she throws in some Pastel Goth with a touch of glam, punk & rockabilly pinup!
She has certainly never been a mainstream type of girl and definitely won't fit into your stereotypical cookie cutter artists role;  but rather she finds beauty in the truly unique, big eyed creepy little cuties with a bittersweet sadness. She is never truly happier then when she is in her art studio painting or sewing, creating a whimsical dream world easily recognizable as her signature style of creepy yet cute, all the way from the haunting darkness to the rainbowtastic, Lizzy’s creations are lovingly sprinkled with a heartbreaking sweetness.Growing up a child of the 80's, pop rocks princess, with an extreme fondness for anything candy coated, Kawaii Kitten & Ziggy Stardust, all of which had a major influence in the work that she is creating today.  Lizzy employs many different mediums when she creates, anything from mixed media painting to sewing with many different textiles, the end result always being the same;  A whimsical dream world filled with big eyed beauties, creepy little cuties and quirky monsters of all shapes and sizes.

Prize: 3 images of choice from store
