Amazing - a mixed media layout

Happy Saturday to you all!
Today I'm sharing with you a mixed media layout I've made for some challenges.

First is the current challenge at 7 Dots Studio blog, with this beautiful moodboard:
When I saw this moodboard, the color combination reminded me the photo I took at Sainte Chapelle cathedral in Paris, with light coming through the stained glasses. I drew some more inspiration from the twinklings, and the photo of the old street (I always think of Paris when I see photos of old streets).
All papers, tags, sticker and die-cuts are 7 Dots Studios.
Next is the current challenge at Mixed Media Place blog, with a quite similar in colors moodboard:
Once again, the colors of purple and teal drew my attention, and also the touch of brown and cream, with twinklings and the stone paved street.
Working with shades of purple and blue/turquoise was perfect for two color challenges. 
One is at Lindy's Gang blog:
Although the pallete is quite pastel one, I decided to go on much bolder version of these colors, with the addition of gold.
The Lindy's products I've used are:
Embossing powder - Caesar's Gold.
Love, love, love how they all combined together.
Last, and certainly not least, is the Feb challenge at Art Playground blog, which also combined shades of purple and blue/teal:
As explained it the excellent tip on this blog, it is very important to add different shapes to your creation, to make it more intersting. One way, which I used here, is working with stencils and modeling paste. The stencil I've used (Magenta) has already different shapes - lines and circles. I used the stencil in the vertical way, the way the windows in the photo go. Then I added more circles with the tags, the gold sequins, the die cuts under the the title and the splatters.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.
