Oh — I almost forgot I wanted to share the gorgeous sunrise at the beach this morning…


Yes, a cloud must’ve blocked the rays so it cut off a straight edge like that on the upper right. Pretty cool! If you follow that line straight down to the horizon, you can see three points of light in a semi-circle that are actually the sun trying to peek through the clouds. It’s not often I make it up early enough to enjoy this. Usually it’s when I’m in pain and can’t sleep. I grab a frap at Starbucks and go watch the glorious show and meditate on some scriptures and it helps distract me. So, if you’re not close to a beach, at least you can grab a cuppa and sit and enjoy the view – perhaps it’ll distract you, too! : )




MFT Camp Create – Magnificent Masking – Hello, Sunshine Card

Here I am yet again with a card from the next session of My Favorite Things Camp Create


This session was on Magnificent Masking.


I masked this two ways… First I used Fineline masking fluid on the stamped images. Toucans are one of my favorite birds (tied with pelicans and hummingbirds). I met several when I lived in South America and they’re quite gregarious. I giggle with him sitting on a pineapple… the fruit of summer – liquid sunshine!


Then, I used a stencil to mask off the concentric circles representing sun rays.


Then I sponged two colors of distress inks over the masks.

Here’s the badge earned for this session:

I love the glitzy, glittery, magical look of the ombre balloons and sentiment. Doesn’t she look like she’s about to travel the world?!  When you get to the inside, you find out she’s just landed —  or is just entering a Dr. Who time vortex in a little blue box (cue music!)!!!
