Focus to see the Light

Wednesday, July 15, 2015



Just a little reminder that there's still lots of time to join in the fun at the Mixed Media Card Challenge this month!




I've layered some papers, added some translucent paste through an ARTplorations stencil, stamped in five different shades of archival ink, and then added some mists.  The sentiment is such a wonderfully encouraging one "it is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light". That may be a hard thing to do some days, but it is so, so true.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Neenah Solar White and Prima Engraver Collection
Ink:  Archival Inks in Jet Black, Cobalt Blue, Forget Me Not, Watering Can and Venetian Orange; and Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Stamps:  STAMPlorations Trendy Butterflies, TYPOgraphia:  Encouragement, Artsy Border Maker
All the other stuff:  translucent paste, ARTplorations Honeycomb Delight stencil, mists, spatula, distressing tool, sponges

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
