Wings with Art Journey

To See the World in a Grain of sand

I so love this image from Art Journey. It depicts the absolute wonder that small children have in the smallest of things. How we loose this wonderment far too soon and take things for granted. Hence the title "To see the World in a Grain of sand".

This little fellow is surrounded by Bermuda pink sand and he is fascinated by the tiny shell and coral fragments that are in it. This is what gives the sand it's wonderful pink colour, which Bermuda is famous for. Most of the sand is much finer than this. I collected these coarser pieces especially.

He is such an angel the wings were a perfect addition. The theme at Art Journey is Wings.

This Delicious Solitude

I love this new stamp plate "Nature's Notes" from Rogue Redhead Designs. It has such a reflective feel to it.

I decided to stamp this lovely image onto paper that would reflect the start of a beautiful sunset. Then layered it onto some pinky coral paper to enhance the pink sky at night feeling. Very little else was needed especially with this apt saying. Anything else added would disturb "this delicious solitude."

Colour Challenge with Stampotique

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Jane over at Stampotique has given us a colour challenge this week. The colours are Navy, Orange and Mustard. I thank her for the combination as it is a fabulous one, that works real well.

I have used Daniel's Hearts and Smile together, masking smile and over stamping with the hearts. Added white gel pen to make the eyes and teeth pop more. Coloured in the hearts roughly to define them with orange, and there you are: Laughter is the Best Medicine.

Eggplant/ Aubergine Colours with Stampotique

Aubergina, Aubergina tiny little thing
Aubergina dance, Aubergina sing.
Aubergina what's the difference if you're very small?
When your heart is full of love nine feet tall!

Yes, my sense of humour to the forefront again. But this little tune seemed perfect for these colours and project.

Sarinda at Stampotique has challenged us to use eggplant/ aubergine colours. I had great fun playing yesterday with inks and paints etc.

The stamps I have used are: Moon Girl; Giant Shroom, Group of Shrooms, Abstract Foliage, French Text, Swirl Stalk. I also added Sakura Glaze pens to the Mushrooms and Moon Girl too.
