Beyond The Blue - Landscaping!!

 Happy Friday!!


Week 3 on the new challenge blog and I seriously had a LOT of fun with the technique!!  Check out the details here:


Beyond The Blue Challenge Blog


The technique uses the gel plate to make abstract landscapes! It's so cool! I made a ton of different backgrounds but chose this one to use to make a card... I had a beachy, mermaidy, peacefulish kind of scene in my head.

 Happy Friday!!


It's our second week on Beyond The Blue technique challenge blog! We are so excited! I am really getting to love experimenting with mixed media!  You can check out all the details on the blog and play along with us here:

The technique had us making impressionism-like prints and then making them into a finished product! I made a card that is a little out of my usual.  Ok well there IS some sparkle and embellishing.... BUT it's on a double black background and I'm really liking that!
