Inspired by: Friends

Sorry I've been MIA.  My sister is visiting from Texas and we are enjoying our time together.  Up to now we have had rain, rain and more rain.  I was beginning to think I was going to have to build an ark!  Since she came, we have had nothing but beautiful sunshine which I am sure she brought along with her, LOL.

This week at Creative Inspirations Paint we are being inspired by friends.

I love this quote which I found online.  The frame is from  StitchyBear Stamps.  The image is printed on acetate and then colored on the backside with CI Paint 'Amethyst', 'Green Olive' and 'Winter Frost'.  I mixed my paint with some glazing medium to give me time to do some blending.  Love the sparkle!  If anyone remembers the tinsel painting from the 50's-60's, this reminds me of those.

I also painted the ribbon which is underneath the image and the butterflies with Amethyst.

  Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day.
