Soak up the Sun

It truly feels good to be back to creating
.....that is not wedding related!

To get me back in the groove,
I needed a bit of help with inspiration so I visited


I LOVE the beach theme and the BEAUTIFUL colors.

As I pondered the mood board, I decided I wanted to create ATC's
so I chose to focus on the colors first.

I pulled out a piece of 7 Dots Studio ~ Palmistry paper
from the Fortune Teller collection.
I mixed up a concoction of
Gesso, High Impact Paint and Glimmer Glam
and splattered it on the paper surface.
Drying each layer as I went.

Next, I pulled out my UmWowStudio ~ Grid Stencil

and applied various texture mediums through the stencil
randomly on the paper.

When the mediums were dry I used a pipette
to drop a bit of Bronze Mist onto my paper.

Now I had completed "paper" which I cut into 3.5" x 2.5" pieces. 
LOOK at all the wonderful ATC bases I have to work with!

Sticking with the beach theme, I pulled out a piece of

cut it to size and colored it with a bit of Glam, along with a flower.
Do you see the seaweed looking chippie?

which can look a bit like seaweed.
I colored it with a bit of Glam and then cut it into pieces.

Lastly, I mixed a bit of sand with a smidge of Clear Gesso
to accent my ATC.

I applied the mixture to edges and used it to adhere
the tiny shells.

I used the words for the Fortune teller collect to round out my ATC.
