Find the Joy... Bring Back Beautiful...

Hi friends!

Thank you *so* much to everyone who stopped by for the Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz and left such lovely comments! I love reading them *wink*

Today I am sharing a card I created for this month's Bring Back Beautiful challenge at Flourishes. This month, the challenge is to try a technique you've always wanted to, or use one you always love. I chose to do something I've wanted to do for a long time, but always forget to try...


I have seen this done a few times, and when Iwona Palmountain was the Limelight Designer awhile ago, she featured the "Out of the Box" technique and reminded me I want to do it. AND - her tutorial was so perfectly simple and easy to follow. Love that.


When I came back the day after I coloured my image, the night time critters had stained one of the leaves.. seriously, not a *clue* what happened there.

I also combined this technique, which I tried to capture in this photo:


Thanks for looking!!

So, SO pretty, Meredith!! Love the technique, and your coloring of the peaches is gorgeous!! When I saw that first close up of the peach, I thought the technique you chose was the coloring one...pencils and...something else...can't even remember what the stuff was. But I really like the technique you chose and have never tried it myself. Love it!

Awesome colouring and the out of the box leaf is so perfectly done! Fabulous technique!

Oh, WOW, this is STUNNING! I tried this technique for the first tim after seeing Chupa's tutorial in her Limelight post, too! Congrats on being one of the True Beauties over at Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful Challenge! A VERY deserving win!

Hugs,
Naomi

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run
into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot
of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell
and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I've been surfing online more than three hours as of late, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It's beautiful
worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners
and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the net might be a lot
more useful than ever before.

I've been surfing online greater than three hours today, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It's pretty price enough for me.
In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the internet might be much more helpful than ever before.
