Sometimes when I sneak off to my craft room, I start random things. Like water coloring pretty backgrounds. Just playing with no end result in mind. I have a stack of water color backgrounds. Not sure what I will do with them exactly, but at some point I am sure I will find a purpose!
I went away a couple of weeks ago with my crafty girls and colored a bunch of images.
I colored it with the Zig Clean Brush markes and added Stickles to the centers of the flowers. I also added several coats of glossy accents to emulate water. I saw this image with my rainbow water colored background and liked the two together. I added a few sequins and a several colors of ribbon.
I have to run again.....to school and for haircuts later today.
Have a great day!!

I hope all is well in your corner of the world!
I am up on the SRM blog today with a fun little coffee cup card by Jane's Doodles. The set is called, Tea Time. I actually colored this images while I spent the 10 days in the hospital with Cort. I finished the card when I was home..
I cut it out using Spellbinder's pierced rectangles and added a bit of yellow ink at the tops of each. A button tied with string, a few sequins, and a sentiment from the We've Got Your Sticker-Birdie Plus collection, was all that was needed to complete my card.
I am off to school again today to try and finish up my room! So much to do yet and I am running quickly out of days!
EEEK! Where O' Where did summer go?

Good morning friends! I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today with this little number.
My mother in law loaned me her set of Zig Clean Color Markers to see if I liked them. Like them? I LOVED them! So I placed an order immediately for them. I love pinks and yellows together so created a wash for the background. I splattered it with a bit of Acrylic white paint.
Instead of glue I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L's DODZ™ - Small
to keep them in place. I adhered the sentiment the same way.
I am setting up my classroom this week trying to get everything in order. I wanted to make a comfy reading corner, so I got a brand new piece of carpeting donated and a few bean bags. I am hoping to finish everything this week so next week our family can have a "staycation" of sorts before I return to school and Kyle heads off to college. Time is flying way too fast for my liking these days!
Have a great day friends! Thank you for including me in your day!
