Peaceful Reflection


Good Morning!

Today I want to show you
Peaceful Reflection

Located on page 158 of the Annual Catalog or Online.
Let these beautiful flowers elegantly dance off the paper. Create reflections by turning the stamp over and stamping with the back side!

See the reflection in the catalog sample? Flip the stamp over and stamp with the back for this look.
How cool is that!?

I love, love, love the little dragonfly. Dragonflies are one of my favorite things along with anything with bees!  While I am writing this post I am down in Chincoteague and our yard has literally hundreds of Dragonflies right now! I kid you not! By the time you all read this I will have gotten another dragonfly tattoo!  It will be done with a watercolor technique on my upper back just below my necklace line.

It will look something like this:
So you can understand why I used the dragonfly stamp in EVERY ONE of my samples!
Here They Are:

I love using framelits to add a dimensional word. This Hello is retired. I do tend to keep any framelit with a word, even  after you cannot get them any longer. Forgive me for teasing you with something not current. You can always check Ebay for retired items!

The outside scallop shapes are contraband Framelits! The smaller inside ones are Layering Squares Framelits, which I use all the time along with the Layering CirclesLayering Ovals, and the Stitched Shapes. They are all super basic tools to add to your stash that will help you build dimensional layers and texture to your projects.
The wings although hard to see, but have Clear Think of Stella on them to give them some shimmer.

The ‘pinking shear’ edge of the bottom layer are also contraband. Hey what can I say, as much as I LOVE Stampin’ Up! I am not married to it.  I feel that using other products helps my creativity and also enhances my Stampin’ Up! items.
The wings here have Clear Think of Stella also, and I think you can see it a bit better.

Tearing the edge of the paper is a super old technique that I have seen being used again lately. It gives a fun texture and artistic flair!
The paper I used here is Watercolor Paper, and I did a wash of color on it with ink from a refill bottle and an Aqua Painter.


Thanks for stopping by!
