Just breathe it all in ...

"Just breathe it all in" ... isn't that a wonderful statement and can be applied in many different ways. Well it was my inspiration for my project for Love 2 Create Challenges and I have used it on a 10p frame I found in a local charity shop ...

I covered the frame with Maimeri white gesso and when dry, a good coating of pearlescent blue pan pastel. On the edges I have used phtalo blue pastel to add a little contrast.

 Colours used: magenta, yellow green & perm green

Using the wonderful new stamps from Polka Doodles, Tropical Flowers 1, I stamped all the images on to water colour card and added the pan pastels with a dry paint brush, blending the colour out with water. For added protection, I covered each of the images with perfect medium and then a healthy layer of clear embossing powder.

Colours used on Humming Bord: magenta and orange

The sentiment that gave me my inspiration, was stamped at the very top for all to see with the hummingbird. Everything was then sealed with a good coat of Mod Podge. Now all I need to do is add a photo ...

Sunday is my lazy day interspersed with household chores and if I can, I try and stay in my PJ's all day ... doesn't always go to play mind you! Have a great day doing whatever makes you happy,
