Playing with stamps, inks, paints and textures still feels like a fairly new thing to me - my creativity has always revolved around words and theatre - but it has become as necessary as breathing over the last few years. I love the experimentation, the learning curve, the discoveries. I almost always work with textures and layers, and with words and ideas too. It's a joy to be invited to guest here at Frilly and Funkie - and I've got a surprisingly simple creation (for me!) to share with you for Suzz's lovely challenge theme.
I love those April days when you have blue skies, sunshine, and gentle showers all intermingling. It seems to me the flowers and trees always look their happiest at this time of year, so my tag is playing with all those elements.
There are some brightly coloured flowers and butterflies (a Calico Craft Part altered mainly with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics) enjoying the warmth, light, and blue skies..
... just as the gentle shower begins to fall (Glossy Accents raindrops against a Distress Ink and PaperArtsy Fresco Crackle sky), refreshing the earth with moisture. The sentiment, a favourite Tim Holtz phrase of mine, is clear-embossed too for that glistening look of water in sunlight. Do come over and visit Words and Pictures if you'd like to see some more details.
