Mixed Media Challenge - 2 Wishing you happiness

I stumbled across this new challenge site and was inspired by the soft colours.  I have a  new batch of photos of our DGD, just perfect for pink, yellow and peach.  It was a good opportunity to practice with some of the stash of paints, mists and textures paste I have tucked away.

The result is not quite what I had in my mind, but I love the random nature of paints and mists.  Just like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get!!!
