What we see depends on what we look for

Umbrellas and blue are the 2 prompts for April’s calendar challenge.
A couple of weeks ago I was so lucky to have won the weekly challenge (the flower one), with my winnings I ordered the starter kit of brushos.
I used them to create the background, just sprinkled some on a sheet of watercolor and spritzed it with some water.

Just fabulous, don't you think?
Next I stamped my umbrella girl on a piece of cardstock and colored her with Derwent Inktense pencils. Then came a bit of fuzy cutting and gluing her to the page.
On another sheet of watercolor paper I used leafgreen brusho in the same way (so shaking and spritzing) and stamped this fab tree. Glued some funky birds out of a napkin and created a dome around them.

Who is watching who? 


  1. Love how you did the blue for the sky! Beautiful!

  2. That is a brilliant piece of work. The colours have turned out amazing and the wee girls is very cute :o))

  3. Brushos are fabulous, so versatile, you are going to have so much fun! Love the composition of your page.

  4. I can open a brusho, close it back and find color in the bottom of my foot! Then those little crystals show up in the oddest places in other work!

  5. Lovely page! Glad you got the Brushos they are fun and versatile.

  6. Love the idea of the giant bird dome x

  7. Brilliant page! I love Brushos. Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.
