Wave After Wave

When I first laid eyes on the Hello Sailor stamp set from Stampin'Up!   I had visions of summery nautical projects dancing in my head! I know its a tiny bit early, but I just had to get some ink on those stamps!!!

 Lately I have been in the mood to just get back to square one. What I mean is that I have for so long only designed for assignments and not for me.... for fun. I felt anchored to one spot, stuck in a creative void at times. Recently I have let go and just made the things I like to make, and It's been fun, easy & amazing to tap into my heart! I love to make things, I love to share them, and I love learning new techniques as I play!

If you are a Cricut magazine subscriber or reader you may have seen my tutorial on this Frothy water technique using puffy paint and the heat tool, its one of my favorites, and one that I play with to see what new things I can do with puffy paint. Like adding glitter, beads, color spritz etc. This card was made following the mojo monday sketch for this week, tall and skinny! I like this sketch a lot!

Try it, if you find some cool new thing make sure to share it with me!

I swiped the anchor {cut with the Silhouette} with silver powder and dipped it in versamark ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and melted it with my heat tool. I like the way it turned out with just a touch of shimmer. I would maybe use a medium to stick the powder to the paper next time. 
  It's my hope that you all are loving the projects that you make, and that you are having fun, and that no matter what you are anchored to, what you "have" to do that you will let true happiness and creativity buoy you up. Don't let your passion become a chore, or a competition, just let it be your love!
