Believe You were Born to Sparkle

I was inspired by the Words & Paintery sentiment: " You are a diamond dear, they can't break you" to create a mixed-media 12" x 12" layout.
I used this paper as my starting point, it was a bit sad to cover up the mermaid!: 

I used the Believe sentiment from Kaisercraft's Sea Breeze Collectables Pack and heat embossed it with a blend of Coral Reef and Peach Bellini WOW! Embossing powders. The pretty pink shell is an iridescent sequin I had in my stash.
The Seahorse was in the Mermaid Tails Collectable pack and I heat embossed it with WOW! Powder and a seahorse stamp from Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea set.

The Dreamcatcher is made with the Kaisercraft Dream Big set and detail is stamped & heat embossed with WOW! Mint Macaroon. The drops are Tonic Nuvo Drops.


 
The flowers were from my stash, but I created the centres of the pink ones using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals dies to echo the starburst stamens of the ones in the Kaisercraft Sketch.


The berries are from Prima's Royal Menagerie - Maud (Velvet Leaves & Berry Clusters)
