Learn to Pause


Hello and thanks for calling in, this poor little blogs been a bit neglected lately, but a wet weekend resulted in some productive play time for a change.

I was wondering what this little girl has could sit on and as she has such a dreamy expression I thought about her just sitting and watching with nothing to do.  So here she is sitting on the garden wall in the sunshine.

I used Crackle paint through a brick stencil and when dry,  rubbed the Distress crayons over and then highlighted the brick pattern with a white pen.  Tumbled Glass crayon for the sky, then Squeezed Lemonade crayon through a stencil for the sun rays  and some wildflowers to complete the scene.
Thought this sentiment was just right.

Lots of showers forecast for this week, so I hope this little girl made the most of her sunshine!
