This is the 4th project in the Technicolor Trio of Tempting Treats and this week's objectives are...
1.) Mixed Media
3.) Glass Jar Creation

Still new to the Mixed Media way of things, I began by what I'd committed to memory, "nothing is wrong...add it all." So I did.

Either way I'm just so glad you spent the time here with me and I hope you enjoyed seeing the process.
Hugs and Happy Crafting!
