aloha 37

aloha! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a couple of projects to share featuring a variety of beautiful and shimmering ColourArte Twinkling H20s. They are packaged in compact containers but they are full of intense and shimmering color. A little goes a long way! First up, is a page in my art journal featuring a happy faced Maui beach girl :) 
Here she is with just a few shades of ColourArte Twinkling H20s. I was so excited to start painting, I forgot to take a photo before I started to paint my sketch!
Not in love with her eyes as they seem to be flat and not quite animated and whimsical as I would like them to appear. Hopefully next time :)
I added lots of texture using a Prima stencil along with Prima Heavy White Gesso. The trio of shell flowers were made using shells from Scott's shell lei :)
The background and flowers were painted using the following colors of ColourArte Twinkling H20s: Stargazer, African Jade, Summer Breeze and the pretty beads are Prima Turquoise Glass Beads:
Next up is a greeting card featuring many of the same products:
Lots of layers, beads, a trio of painted blooms and seashells to carry on with the sea / beachy theme:
Lots of texture as well and a hand made banner and Martha Stewart doily:
I joined along with the following challenges:
Frilly and Funkie ~ Raise It Up! 
For card sketch inspiration ~ Cardabilities:
color inspiration for BOTH ~ Words & Paintery
theme inspiration ~ scrakki-wyzwaniowo ~ The Sea
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)

Both projects are fabulous. I am super envious that you can draw - I need a ruler to make a straight line. I love the cool colour palette of the card and the embossed panel is so striking and adds wonderful texture to your great layers. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie.
