This is a project focused on one color, one stencil and one stamp and the challenge is from the Mixed Media Place - Creative Gym Exercise - The Power of One.  

I had a hard time choosing my color as I really love color.  I thought I would do something different and use words for my stencil and my stamp. 

I started with a white paper bag leftover from something we purchased.  I decided to stencil words onto the paper bag with white embossing paste.  I then put layers of Ranger Distress Stain Sprays (Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord) with sprinkles of white paint.

After I finished the background I cut a few dies in white cardstock and layered them over the background.  The dragonfly was covered in glitter to add a touch of glistening.  I added a few flowers and stamped my sentiment in two layers one in white and one in purple.

Have a great weekend!
