Twisted Sketches #23 / Kid Lit Challenge #8

This week with Twisted Sketches #23 -  the twist is "to use a Punch" - any how, any way!  
That's easy enough - I used 2 MS punches here - the loopy punch & a scallop . 
& a new challenge site discovered - Kiddie Lit -
a challenge blog with challenges inspired by children's literature. 
This month's challenge is to : 
Include PLANTS- leaves OR flowers (either in your photos or in products)
Include a SECRET -hidden journaling or pics, or the word SECRET in your title.

For the journaling I used part of a poem : 

by Joseph Kallinger

I discovered a secret of life
in a single line of poetry.
That was a week ago.
Today, I celebrate a new week
yet have forgotten
what the secret was.

& a new happy  discovery I just made here - I can make my own Shimmerz type paint right at home !
We can't buy the Shimmerz brand at the moment in our stores here & I have been wondering about them.
I stumbled on a youtube link to get me started .
The ingredients are so simple - mod podge + Perfect Pearl Powder for me .

Supplies :

Prima Blooming Retro pps & pearls
Pink Paislee alphas
