Juliet's challenge

It was my turn to pick a card and this one really makes me think of Clearwater Beach. We drove across the state and down the coast and got to the gulf just as the sun slipped below the horizon. Everything they say about a sunset over the ocean is true, we live on the sunrise side and the sun kind of pops up with not a lot of fanfare. But the setting sun, and the noise and conch shell blowing on the beach, and dolphins breaking the surface of the water as they dove ... now that was a day to remember. And ... the sky was JUST THIS PINK !!!
For the whole tutorial, visit this blog... I am so lucky, I am going to take a class with Michelle in February.

... the competition goes on, or the friendly challenges, yeah, that is what they are. Juliet created a gorgeous sunset and then went and did a sunrise as well in a different colorway. You can go see her cards here ... I on the other hand, started 4 different cards using the tutorial and came up with 3 that just didn't make it. I am kind of pleased with this one ... and planning to frame it and put it in my stamp room --- probably with the saying that Juliet shared from a Tim Holtz stamp
... creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes art is knowing which ones to keep ( or in my case which ones to use as a background for a crazy octopus drawing ! Clearly I am more on the creative side than the artistic one.)

  1. This one is really pretty! I'm glad I'm not the only one who has to try over and over to get a good result.


Thanks for leaving me a note! Makes it all worthwhile!
