One of Lynne`s amazing Affirmations, which I used, to create for this weeks challenge
over at  :  .

The CHALLENGE is STENCILS  , and wow, so many possibilities with all the stencils to choose from over at Laura`s shop :

I started with a White Greyboard  tag 
sprayed with Sleight Blue , when dry I added Vintage photo to the perimeter, and highlighted also in between with the Salty Ocean, and Teal , then stenciled the beautiful Dinky stencils ,Bubbles, and Fossil, using different Oxide Inks.

The Hummingbird, and feather were both stenciled onto prepared cardstock 
fussy cut, and after details were painted with fingers, also using Oxide inks, and fine liners 
black and brown. 
Lynne`s wonderful Affirmation, was stamped onto old paper, cut up and adhered to tag, with bird and feather.- a piece of colored lace first added to the top tag !!
In the bottom tag,  a great new medium Texture Sand Paste was smeared out, and painted with diluted and mixed paints of Chestnut Brown and White . Also around the fossils , feather, and bird ,I painted this .

When all dried, I adhered remnants from the sea, picked up, on my walks from the beach,
here is cord and seaweed together with a straw .

You know you can take part in this challenge, yourself, with the possibility to win the price of this Voucher.

Just pay a visit there, to read the rules , and send in your wonderful creations !!

Hugs and love
