Believe (Mixed Media Project)

My project “Believe” created for the August Challenge over at the Mixed Media Place blog.

Maybe it’s the fact that I feel like summer is never going to end where I live, but the second and third photo on the top row of the Mixed Media Place mood board, at first glance, looked like ice on the foliage. I’m not exactly a person who likes being cold, and I live in a southern state, but I’ve had it with summer this year! It’s the middle of September and we are still hitting the mid-90s! Which, according to the weather last night, is a full ten degrees above average! Too, too much I tell ya!

Beside the thought of ice, I really loved the colors in general on the mood board! It’s filled with most of my favorites! But once I had blue + white + ICE!! on my mind, I had to go with it! Below the mood board you will find a process video, some more photos, and a full product list.
