I created this layout on 10x8 size canvas pad..
I have used Tim Holtz stencils for background texturing, Tim holtz Distress spray, Heidi swapp spray. I have chosen Papericious brand pattern papers(proud to say that it is an Indian brand)...my mixed media essential kit from Prima and lots of embellishments. 

Picture of my mother her in purple saree gave me some ideas.

My mother loved doing stitching ...I remember, when I was a kid, most of my dresses were made by her. She is very creative and I feel creativity is in my genes..So I have used stitching machine,scissors charms and a lil "mom" "Handmade with love" charm.
