A Flower Faiey Pin
I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die and Tattered Leaves Die.  I used three layers of the large petals and dipped those and the leaves in UTEE.  This helped to hold the fabric shape for the petals.  The face is painted on a jewelry gourd and glued to the center of the flower.  Her hair is made from the thin petal on the die.  It was glued to card stock, then folded and curled.  Crystals are on gold twisted wire and circle the neck area.  A circle of card stock is glued to the back of the leaves and a pin back attached.  Fun piece to make, hope you enjoy!
My second piece of Mixed Media Art.  This piece is on a wood box.  I used an image purchased from Ephemia's Vintage Garden.
Texture paste is used on the background and I added some torn papers, images, grapevine and a crown from Tim Holts.  The box sides are painted with a wood grain technique. 

This is my first attempt at Mixed Media.  I used a piece of 6x6 paper from the London Market collection with the roses as my beginning for this piece.  The background has texture paste with roses stamped into the paste before it dried.  I chose a green for the background to coordinate with the green on the paper.  From there, I used stamps, punches, and die cuts to built the piece.  This is on an 8x8 canvas.
