Dream a Little
Dreaming is an act of pure imagination, attesting in all men a creative power, which if it were available in waking, would make every man a Dante or Shakespeare.
Today starts a new Anything Goes Challenge at Through The Craft Room Door.
Our Sponsor this week is Aurora Wings
I used this beautiful image of a seahorse with wings!
At this time I don't own any alcohol markers so I colored this little pretty with my Prisma color pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I added some glitter here and there to give a nice sea worthy glitz.
The background has a slight shimmer too but because it is so subtle I can't get a picture of it to come through.
I did that using a soft brush loaded with a bit of Pearl X and softly brushing over my stenciled background while the ink was still a bit wet.. It created just enough shimmer to be effective and not overpowering.
