Happy Birthday America !

It's summertime... swimming, bar-b-ques, watermelon, sunscreen & 4th of July. I have to admit... this one was so much fun, I probably could have kept going and going but I finally had to say "ENOUGH". That's what I love about mixed media... It's an evolving project. I start with one idea and then something takes over, and then I change my mind again and again... I love it... freedom in
art... hey no pun intended to my piece here... lol

City Crafter challenge is Red White and Blue this week. Art Journal Journey challenge is "Houses", and Anything But A Card challenge is "Use 5" ...I used 5 different art techniques, Embossing, 3d embellishing, stamping, glue gun technique & Dylusion sprays. Shopping Our Stash is also "Red White & Blue".
, 3d
The stamps I used for my houses are from the wonderfully creative Teesha Moore.Everyone have a safe and beautiful 4TH OF JULY... Special thank you and God bless to all who have and are serving our country. We salute you ! xoxo Toni
