Three challenge entries in one!!!

I haven't combined challenge entries in a while, but this time I've made a layout for the following challenges:

For this challenge I felt prepared because this week I *just* had my selfies printed at costco as part of a collage thing I made to fit an 8 x 12 print. And these were from last month, so I'd say they're recent enough for this challenge since the goal was to celebrate your age right now. :)

This was the base of my layout, as the sketch greatly assisted in guiding me to placement of everything. :)
I really enjoyed this sketch - It felt different than any other sketch I've used!
The sketch for this challenge is as follows:

I finish off with this challenge as it gave me a reason to use up the embroidery thread that came in the grab bag from Studio Calico. :)
I used the whole length of it (1 yard, maybe?) to make a multi-layered bow, and then I finished it off by adding a star from the trim I got in the Studio Calico card making grab bag since it coordinated with my gold accenting on the layout!

Without further delay, here is my layout!! :D

This is one of my favourite mixed media layouts so far... I almost didn't go the MM route because I was trying to keep it relatively flat, but throw on some watercolours, stenciling, splatters and inking... And Ta-da!

Thanks so much for dropping by!
