Whoo hoo Charity Wings asked me to make something beautiful for them to auction off!  I am so honored to do something for such an amazing organization. They give hope to so many people of all ages ...through art ...which is so cool! Please support them anyway you can! 
So I decided to create on one of our Memory Easels... so much fun using our journey media products... I painted it first with Journey Gesso, then Cool Pool acrylic  paint... I sanded it a little then I sponged on some Buttercream acrylic paint! I die cut tons of different stuff and then laid it out a bunch of times configuring it in different ways and mulling it over... ya know the creative stuff... it takes time! Luckily for me I didn't glue anything down till I was absolutely sure!
I love this color combo: gold, Cool Pool, and Buttercream... luckily I have cardstock, silk, paint and splashes in those colors! Whoo hoo! I definitely think they are my favorite colors right now!
 The flowers I diecut out of Buttercream cardstock using our awesome steel rule die, called Summer Bouquet, it makes three sets of two different shapes  of flowers. It's simply makes the most gorgeous flowers ever!
My favorite discovery was I added gold embossing powder to our Clear Blooms Accents and they turned out sooo pretty! The swirly swirl wood flourish I also added gold embossing powder to ... and wow they are so gorgeous in gold! And guess what ... the flourishy things are free with any $50 order! They are one of our Bloom Benefits ... one free for every $50's spent! I hope my creation makes someone very happy.... ps... the photo page is removable so the person who wins it in the auction can change it up if they like!
ps ... we have an awesome sale going on right now too on all our essentials adhesives, scissors, clear blocks and all kinds of cool stuff!
