Beauty


Beauty....
There are so many things that are beautiful, especially this time of year. Where we live we get to experience all four seasons and things are so pretty right now!
When I first looked at this image from Cornish the first things that came to mind were kindness, gentleness (fruits of the spirit) and then I thought "BEAUTY".
This image is called "horse and rider" from the Saturday Evening Post line at CHF. I colored it with my copics and then airbrushed the paper to give it more of a cream look. I used E50, E11 and E15 for the airbrushing.
I wanted to add in the woodgrain backgrounder but wanted a little more of a modern spin on it so I stamped it on acetate. I layered it all over beautiful Melissa Frances paper and used these rose resin embellishments from Melissa Frances as well.

I wanted to show you a close shot of the sentiment and you can also see the edges of my airbrushing and how my grey shadows blend really nicely into that airbrushing. You might have to click on the photo to get in really close to see.

I have some pretty exciting announcements coming next week...so watch for those! There's something in it for you too....my lips are sealed till then!

Have a great day!
