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.

Under the sea, on the ocean floor ....

No trip to the seaside this summer for me...(boo hoo!) so I decided to create some under water tags using the seahorse set, starfish set and water rising bubbles stamps from Design by Ryan, the seaweed and coral are from Ocean Backgrounds by Dyan Reavely

Like I said in my last post I mostly water-coloured the various elements with Distress markers and a water brush, the creatures were given a coat of rock candy crackle paint. The tags were coloured  with Distress stains and inks, squeezed lemonade, mowed lawn, salty sea and Mermaid lagoon.

love those rising bubbles

abandoned coral is a lush colour!

The Holidays always seem to be a time when I start do some messing and crafting, unfortunately when work comes back around all that's left is good intentions!!! ..... Let's hope that this time I'll do more outside the holidays!!!

Been doing some stamping and colouring in using Distress markers, Distress ink pads and a water brush ......

First of one of the amazing stamps I got from Design by Ryn 

Next up playing about with Crazy Birds stamps and dies, again with Distress, did a few bits with my Inktense Pencils..... like I say playing!

Now to use them in cards or tags....more to come later!!
