Challenge:  Creativity with Texture.

Creative Inspirations Paint - Inspired by Anything Goes

I created my textured background by using the butterfly stencil and molding paste.

I LOVE this butterfly stencil and have been getting a lot of use out of it, OK, so I really love butterflies... but then, who doesn't?

Another MUST HAVE product for me is the Dylusions White Linen spray ink...this stuff is awesome! 
It can be super white or you can dilute it for a softer effect.

They let me sneak in over at Frosted Designs..ssshhhh....don't tell anyone, but you can see my post here!
I hope all of you that like to "mix it up" will go play in their challenge too!

 Yes, I love butterflies so much I will camp out all day on the side of a mountain to photograph them!
You can see my pictures HERE.

This is so lovely. I adore those dylusions sprays. You can dilute them with water, then in another bottle, dilute with water, add in same amount of white linen. I've gotten 3 shades out of one color by doing that. Gonna try adding in some black to the diluted spray - soon as I get some more bottles! Really am liking this butterfly stencil and what you did with it on this piece. TFS & Happy Sunday.

LOVE the beautiful worn look of your make, Sandee! It has a feel of transparency and light-ness to it that makes it a small piece of poetry to me!

Hugs,
