thanks to our Veterans...

this sentiment seemed appropriate for today...

thanks to all our veterans & to those currently serving & working hard to keep us safe...
we appreciate YOU so much...



this was a quick card to put together...
the diagonal stripes are the yikes stripes stencil, just used on an angle and stenciled with

 a favorite stamp-it stencil-it...
the flower is the gorgeous
the leaves are stenciled 

I had intended to stamp
then stencil & keep it completely flat,
 but I had a scrap of clearly for art already covered with newsprint, so I added another layer, with just the flower...
that little extra makes a big difference...

the sentiment and floral collage were both stamped with jet black...

you can see that t's a
simple & quick card...

I've had lots of requests for tutorials doing more art journal pages...
I KNOW...
it's been a while...

so...

I have one done & I'll be back on Friday with a ton of step out photos to show how I add multiple layers to the background 
with stamps, stencils & inks...

AND...
there's also
  a fun NEW technique...

here's a peek...



I'm really liking the tea rose
sky blue & leaf green archival trio of colors...
using jet black makes them all pop...

that's it...

time to edit the photos & write the tutorial...

see you back here on Friday...

enjoy your day &  
I hope you can...

make art!
wendy
