Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain. La vie, ce n’est pas d’attendre que l’orage passe, c’est apprendre à danser sous la pluie.

I'm starting to be good about making crafting time, space for me at last!!! Here are before and after photos of the project I started in class at Version Scrap in Paris with Leandra.
before "white washing"
The "whitewashing" was done with thinned down coats of Fresco snowflake (three in all I think) this mutes the colours and pushes them into the background. Lin Brown's Eclectica stamps for the background.
stamped and painted
the piece was then stamped using black archival and various stamps from the JOFY collection, Jo Firth-Young for PaperArtsy. Coloured in using Fresco paints, mainly the translucent ones. I'll be getting more brushes tomorrow to continue, especially with the Treasure Gold.
