Hi all, Kat here,
I'm here with project no 2,
it's another page in my little board book,

The focus is still on Perfect pearls this month,
you can grab yours HERE at a discount price.

My page is missing a smart of funny saying or quote,
can anyone help me out on this one,
please leave me a comment with any suggestions
as I am stumped, but I do feel the page needs one.

this is such a shiny page but I can't seem to get it on the camera.
 (sorry about that)

OK I started by painting my page with blue acrylic paint,
then sprayed green patina perfect pearls all over it
then took a flat paint brush & brushed all over the page
to get the sheen all over, I unscrewed the bottle &
splatted the plastic pipe over the page to get the splats. 

next I stamped the (be confident find your wings & fly)
all over the page,
along with parts of the Harlequin background stamp
both stamped in Coffee archival ink
I then doodled around the page with a black uni-ball pen
& a white gel pen.
I cut the car images from a collage sheet,
and stamped & added the wings from the
then glued them in place,
lastly I added a sky line cut from a magazine
to try to give a bit of perspective.

hope you like it!
I'll be back on the 25th with a more in depth project
until then have a crafty time,
Kat x.

Nothing great is coming to me with a title......."Leaving the city" or "The road trip starts here" perhaps?

It is fantastic Kat I love it. It reminded me of a well known actor Bob Cummings who owned an actual flying car in the 50's one of his best known quotes includes this line;

"You can accomplish anything you want, if you act as if it were already accomplished."
