Here is my offering for you today:

Secret Garden, FULL, SG VLVS BH

I created this little mixed media bingo card canvas, I call “The Secret Garden.” The background is created using several different mists and paints, all smoothed together using a brayer.

For the little mandala/halo around the happy moon, I stenciled using StencilGirl seeds, with 13 Arts modeling paste, gesso, and paints. I liked the gradient/ombre effect.
I used several Viva Las VegaStamps! background stamps-checkerboard, cursive writing, and washi grid as well as the inside outย  stencil.

I created the little garden vignette with the line of grass , and girl in princess costume, which I watercolored for a dreamy effect.
The papers and embellishments came from the Scraps of Darkness July kit “believe”, except for that fabulous chipboard flourish, which is from UmWowStudio. ๐Ÿ™‚
