A play day.....

Sometimes LIFE can become overwhelming....
when it happens to me
To go to my happy place and find some PEACE!

 After hoping along the Mixed Media Mania YouTube Hop
I was inspired to pull out a canvas and to use some BRIGHT colors.
The colors also fell in line with the
Our Mixed Media Moods so it seem PERFECT!

Can I scared me!! So much so, I ran to my kitchen sink,
pulled out a scrub brush and 
scrubbed off as much color as I could.

and I could see my background of collaged vintage papers.

To tone it down a tad more, I covered the canvas with
Distress Collage Medium ~ Vintage
When it was dry, I added a very light layer of White Gesso.

From this point on....I went into full CREATE MODE
which to me means.....just create with out documenting!

I used the Butterfly Collage Stencil and applied
a mixture of Light and Fluffy with Champagne Modeling Paste
mixed with......wait for it.....sand!

I accented my canvas with various colored Prills
and one of my FAVORITE stamps.

I hope you enjoyed my FREE CREATE ~ PLAY DAY
I know I did and I LOVE IT!
