Dreams

The Mixed Media Place August Creative Exercise #20 challenges us to be inspired by our dreams.  When I was younger I had a list of places I wanted to go explore and see.  I used that as my inspiration.


 I started with a scrap of paper that had this lovely mix of greens and blues in the background.  I then started working on another project which provided a lovely cut out of the sizzix dragonfly and I decided to use that to create an image on this background.


 I painted the butterfly using a mix of distress inks and a waterbrush. I added a hint of silver on the dragonfly. 

I then stenciled words about art using black stenciling paste over the top of my stamped images.

I added a few travel inspired stamps and words to finish my card.

Have a lovely weekend!

  5. Suzz! This is just gorgeous! I love how you've kept the background colors soft and blended so beautifully, yet the image of the dragonfly is still so powerful! This looks amazing with the touches of black and as always, your aesthetic makes me smile and be in awe at the same time!
