Live In The Sunshine

It's such a grey,
rainy/icy day here, it was difficult to get theses photos true to life... but I need to forget all that and live in the sunshine. If it's sunny on the inside everything looks better.

I applied a coat of
gesso and dried with my heat tool. Added a layer of molding paste using a Prima stencil. (For some reason, Prima doesn't put the names on the packaging... the item number is 922436.)

I then did some
spraying with Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise and Fresh Lime, and for shimmer Patina and Meadow Green Glimmer Mist. A little stamping with Archival ink in Jet Black and Aquamarine was next. I mixed some gesso with yellow craft paint, and dabbed it onto the flower centers.

Finally I added my 
image and text which are from the Artistic Outpost set The Outpost. I stamped them onto a scrap of My Mind's Eye Meadowlark paper from a 6x6 pad, tore them out and inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink and highlighted with Mustard Seed.

Hope you have a sunny day, friends!
