HOP POST for details and rules!
Play fair and have lots of fun!
Stay Inspired & Stay Safe!

Because of this hop and the severe restrictions of lockdown in Melbourne, I have been trying to find myself different projects every day just to keep me going!

I am writing this on September 26th  but it is still  Day 50 of Leigh's hop - so I have one more post...

A friend on Facebook alerted me to Water Color Splotch birds Amber K Creative so I had to have a go..

I wanted to try out my new shimmery water colours anyway... I combined them with the little colour swatch set.

Anyway here were my little birdies:

I hope you can see the shimmer on the yellow at least...

I then made one of these into a simple card inspired by the sketch at
Thank you Debbie for picking my Pride and Prejudice card as your favourite last week!

Just a couple of layers and a Tim Holtz chipboard quote. Quite appropriate I think as I keep seeing possibilities everywhere!

I  will add this to Leigh's Linky

The linky says 6 hours to go - so I may get in just one more post...

Happy Crafting!
