Good Morning,

Hope all of you have had a wonderful week. The weather here in Texas has cooled down to the 90's, but at night it gets down to the high 70's and it is soooooo nice. I sit out on the patio a little last night and played with the furbabies. We have dog doors so they can go in and out as they please, but they like to be where I am. They are just a little spoiled.hehe

 Now, to my page. I took more pictures because I was trying to capture the true colors of the page, but it is difficult when you have shine.

This page I took in a different light it could tone down the shine and you could see the detail better.  The background is done with acrylics and then I used LUMINARTE ACRYLIC  SILK GLAZE  in KEY LIME  and the LUMINARTE PRIMARY ELEMENT MICA POWDER  in WISTERIA to add the shine.

The stamps I used are:  STAMPOTIQUE PROM QUEEN, STAMPOTIQUE - MR STRIPES, DYLUSIONS - FURTHER AROUND THE EDGE (leaves), DYLUSIONS - BITS AND BATS (cat).  I used a CREATIVE WORKSHOP STENCIL - RUSTIC PAINT for the black you see in the background.  The leaves were colored with DYLUSIONS INKS - CUT GRASS.

Oh, one more thing - DID YOU NOTICE the paint on the spider.  It is the new VIVA DECOR 3D STAMP PAINT - VIOLET This paint is really cool because it dries according to how you apply it.  In this case I applied with a brush, but dabbed it on and it dried raised and with texture.  There is a closeup below.  You can click on any of the pictures and they will enlarge.


 This picture kinda reflects the shine and some of the colors.  It does all blend together nicely, just hard to capture in the right light.

Do you see the texture of the VIVA 3D STAMP PAINTClick on the pic and you can see it better.

In this picture, I was trying to capture the texture.  I used a 2 ply napkin and when I applied it the second layer texture came through - this was accidental - but I thought it looked kinda cool.  I just love MR STRIPES.  I think he is so cute.

I hope you enjoyed viewing this page.  I have found it is sooooo much fun to create these pages and just be free, even though they never turn out the way I planned.  Just go with the flow. hehe

Will see you next week and let you know what products SUSANA has in and have a new project for you.

Have a wonderful weekend!
