The Broad {Wing} Of Time

Saturday, September 14, 2013

Finally had the time and energy {at the same time} to get into my craft room today!
I figured, why not make a mess?
I wasn't sure what I was going to end up with, but I started out by spritzing some watercolor paper with color shine sprays.  After they dried, I stamped on them and embossed with gold.  Then back out with the sprays to stencil and drip some color onto the paper. 
In the end, I only use small portions of the papers that I create.
It always happens that way.

Thanks for coming by today!
