Imagination has no Age

Drill #56
I love the dark background with the butterflies as well as the sunset colors of the flowers.
I melded the two into this imaginative piece.
 I ripped the strips of paper from an old dictionary, then painted them with mist. Some of the colors are a mix of shades and mist types. I repeated the process in miniature to punch the butterflies.
The process curled all the paper tips up. It looks so vibrant in person.
I had to use rolled duct tape to get it to lay flat for the photo!
The mermaid and ship stencils are from Fun Fare.

The full quote as attributed to Walt Disney,
"Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age, and Dreams are forever."

Plaid With Washi

Plaid is so often misunderstood!
It gets slipped in the same category as so many other fashion mistakes.
Can't you here the advice coumnists? “Don't mix patterns, it makes your outfit confusing.” Don't use too many bright colors, it's painful to the eye.” “Use plaid sparingly, it is difficult to accesorize.”
But WHAT IF you do all of those at once?
It's so wrong it's right!!!
For close-ups of these cards and a clear view of that DASHING washi plaid pattern
