Holiday weekends offer a lot if you are willing to enjoy. I love the extra time to sort through all of life’s adventures and endless “to do” lists. But it is also a time to pace yourself and reflect. This project offered me that time.
I started with the idea of more precise painting, but quickly learned that it had other things in mind. Since I have such a hard time waiting for much of anything, my colors couldn’t stay still. So I went with it and created a much more fluid and dreamy look. You can tell from the warp of the side of the paper just how much water went into this project. I had fun though, and it was truly relaxing.
The sentiment was stamped on very vanilla and cut out using one of the dies from the Bunch of Banners framelits set. I love the crisp edges of a die cut. The inside stamp was another image from the same stamp set. This particular set isn’t available for regular purchase, but at a reduced price when you host a workshop. Sounds like a win win to me!
Have a creative day!
