Brightness with DecoArt!

Hello everyone, thank you for visiting me today. I hope you are all well and enjoying your Sunday afternoon.

I went swimming this morning and as it was pouring down when I'd finished we went straight home. We were going to go for a walk in Oak Woods a short drive away, but neither of us felt like getting wet. Sooooo I got some craft time unexpectedly. I was drawn towards the blog post from Unruely Paper Arts which says                         Inspire Your Heart with Art Day! You can read all about it here.

So this is just for me. 

used the other canvass from yesterday and to liven it I sprayed Media Mists from DecoArt in Shimmer Yellow Shimmer Violet  and Shimmer White. I dried these and then added some touches of Green Yellow.

I was loving all the colour but that was it. Nothing else was happening! That was until I turned it upside down.

I loved it this way up and could see so much. In this light it hard to see what appears in the background but you will hopefully see something later.

What I focused on was the two buds in the centre, I added another, and coated all three in Quinacridone Gold. I gave them all two coats and when dry I outlined the left side in my Stabilio Pencil which I then activated with water. Once this was dry I used a white Gell Pen to add some nightlights. 

I really like how the buds were growing at the end of a path which if you looked up you could see the house at the end 

The buds resonated to me in that they were different from everything else and I wanted to give the message that it was ok. To give myself permission to be Me even if I am different from others. It's ok! So my sentiment said just that.

I enjoyed letting my imagination guide me on this canvass. I hope you you like what I created.

Thanks for your visit. Take care all of you with poor weather. Stay warm Stay safe 
Bye for now Debsxx
