Birds-eye view

Seeing from a point of view from an altitude or from a distance; a comprehensive view in a downward direction; also called an “aerial view”.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Limor Weber's February challenge ( color challenge plus journaling prompt )

Simon Says Monday Challenge - We love Stamps


♥ A shimmer shot

More wonderful shine ♥ and hand lettering. Everything was drawn using a pipette and ink and once dry I go back and sketch around the designs with a waterproof pen. This puppy has been sealed with Helmar Crystal KOTE Varnish to protect the inks and colors.
 Love the ghost writing I did using my water brush with the inks
 Purposely blurred out the journaling, but it's all about what I wish I had done, what I wish I had been told, etc. to have become an artist who is confident. I wrote it out on the backside of my art work and then glued the piece to my board so it cannot be seen. :)

Close to my Heart - stamp
various inks - Dylusions ( Bubble Gum Pink,  Lemon Zest )
 Lindy's ( Starburst Tiffiany Lou Blue, Sea Mint Green and Moon Shadow Mist Gossamer Gold )
Sakura Pigma Sensei - waterproof pen
Signo - white pen
