lil miss Oddleigh July 4th is the star of my mixed media tag creation today.  How adorbs is she!!!

She's so cute and super fun to create with and I paired her up with my own handwritten text.
 I'll be adding this lil text story to an upcoming Sentiment Set so stay tuned😉

 I had so much fun creating this fun July 4th scene with all the dimension, texture, sparkle and shimmer....soooo pretty!

I created the background with Wilted Violet, Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxides with fun water splats to create the mottled textural effect that I think looks like distant firework lights.  I used Dylusions paint pens to base colour in the Oddleigh Fireworks and then applied Sunny Yellow Viva Pearl 3D gel to the stars and blue and pink glitter glue to the sparks.  I also used black and white Dylusions paint pens to add the fun border to frame the scene as well as her cute checkerboard stockings.

 I coloured lil miss Oddleigh July 4th's hair and face with prismacolor pencils and her eyes, lips, clothes and the USA flag with sparkle gel pens.  For even more shimmer I applied clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to her eyes and eyelashes as well as the highlight areas on her face.  The text is handwritten with a black sharpie fine point pen and mounted on Crafter's Companion heavy weight black cardstock.  I used the same cardstock to die cut out the large Crafter's Companion Contemporary Tag.  To add even more fun shine I used gold Pebeo gilding wax to edge and enhance the stitched design on the black tag as well as frame all the text.  I layered my scene onto the tag with pop dots for some fun dimension and adhered the text with tacky glue.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing lil miss Oddleigh celebrate her 4th of July and hope your evening is as magical as hers🎉
