None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

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.

Good morning!
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.
