More alchemy work....

It's been a
very creative week
for me!
I've been answering the knock of inspiration
and this sketch at Scrappolis called out to be worked on. I adored the
circle and paint drop elements in the sketch.
Here's some close ups to share with you:

And one more close up to inspire you to work this sketch too!

You can find Scrappolis here.

Here's the sketch for you to ponder over:

Excuse my lack of the language, however, I was not sure which of the two following badges I was to post in my blog.

Sketchabilities #133 has an awesome mixed media sketch!

When inspiration comes a knocking,
you have to answer!
Sketchabilities #133

me to answer her
with this
I applied my recent small card technique on a much larger scale which rendered these results. I adore the yummy alchemy of watercolors, micro beads, dry wall tape, tissue paper and glitter. 

Some more close ups to share with you:

Now, it's your turn to answer inspiration's call and you have a few more days to do so at Sketchabilites here.
How could one not be inspired to work with this sketch #133?

Sunny in California...another small card

to commit
to a large
I'm enjoying
creative process
crafting small
Some close-up of the details. 
I'm becoming an alchemist by mixing micro beads, glass glitter, and fine glitters in various color combination with this series of cards where I use the same technique but using different colors and embellies.

Hmmm...which color should I create with next?
Thank you for dropping by.  Once I hone down on the technique, I'll be happy to share it with you.

Winter's Muse

I found
a lovely
challenge site
that has
inspired me
to create
Muse .
The challenge was to create something with a winter theme, predominately blue, some ribbon
and some medium.  You can find the challenge here at Scrap and Skill. Share some love with the ladies there when you visit. :)
I moistened the front of the cardstock with water and scrunched it up in my hands to get a worn tattered look, then when it was dry, it was laid on some puddles of water mist and blue mists and dried with a heat gun. Some stamping, more mist, and then a stencil and molding paste finished off the background work.  Thank you for visiting.
Here are some close ups:

This card won the Winter Challenge at Scrap'N Skill's Challenge site.
