Smile! Today is Your Day

Има ли нещо по-зареждащо в мрачните дни от една искрена усмивка -било то подарена някому от нас или такава, с която някой е стоплил сърцето ни, карайки и нас да се усмихнем?!...Както се казва в една реклама напоследък-' Усмихни се, щастието ти отива'....:):) 

'Smile, today is your day'

CAS Mix Up August Challenge

I was not sure how to explain the use of alcohol ink in my project, so I didn't, but I'll try doing so now.
 I used the alcohol ink with a brush here-on the leaves and combined it with watercolor to make the colours more intense.I took the filler of an old green pen, that has the ink in it, put it in a jar with spiritus aethylicus that I had at home and that way I could use the ink with a brush or spray.I usually use it as a spray, but since I needed it for more precise work, I used a brush to fill in parts of the leaves. So basically, that's all.

Here's another project that I made with spiritus aethylicus, but this time I used it to create beautiful background by drawing with colour pens and then used cotton applicator soaked in the spiritus to make the colours blend.(you can also use a pipette by putting some drops over the colours and they start blending by themselves.Then just do so over different places of the coloured surface until the marks of the pens are no longer visible and all the colours blend together.)I hope I managed to explain the making process well enough so you'll be able to understand and even try it, if you want:)

Leaving you some encouragement from God's Word in Ephesians 2:10 which says, "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them."
