Led by your dreams

I have been a bit grumpy lately probably the result of the  greyness and rain after that burst of sunshine so in order to encourage the sun back I got my grump penguin stamps out to see if putting them in a exotic setting would cheer them up, unfortunately I don’t think it did!For details of what I did pop over to the That's Crafty blog.

Field of Flowers

This is my entry for the Colourarte Challenge "Field of Flowers" My blooms are from the Donna Downey Signature Series Stencil - Bloom Group - DD-035, I used a mix of texture paste and  Primary Elements to create the flowers, mixing each Primary Element colour - Royal Orchid, Passion Fruit and Ginger Flower -  with separate texture paste and spreading in different parts of the stencil to get shade and light, then giving another coat of colour with the Primary Elements and water when the texture was dry.  The leaves are from the Paper Artsy PS005 Stencil using a mix of  Golden Jade and Douglas Fir Primary Elements again mixed with Texture Paste.  For the background I sprinkled various green Primary Elements - Kiwi, Teal Zircon, Moss Agate and Moss Green and spritzed with water and heat set. When heat set I used a coat of Guatemalan Green Silk to pull the greens together.

A Bird in the Hand

This is my make over on That's Crafty today, a journal page.  The idea behind it was that having failed yet again to win the lottery, be nominated for a Nobel prize, put an end to animal cruelty, lose 3 stone, climb Mount Everest, clean the house, become Miss World, end world hunger and invent time travel to learn be content with what I have and have achieved not what I don’t have or have not achieved (at least yet).
