Finding Serenity

Greetings!  Linda here again with my Sunday post, this week looking for a little serenity with the Artistic Outpost Serenity set.  Love this set!  I started with a jumbo manila tag, sponging it with Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn for the greens and Peacock Feathers for the blue sky, then I spritzed it a bit with Perfect Pearls Perfect Pearl mist to give it a little sheen.  Once I had the background laid down, the stamps from the Serenity set were stamped in Jet Black archival.  

I cut a piece of card stock that had been sponged with Walnut Stain and the Woodgrain stencil with the Courtyard Frameworks die and embellished it with several filigree metal pieces.  The sentiment was stamped on a book page that had been brushed with gesso.  I finished it off with a stencil mark, key and tiny heart.  

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you find some serenity this week!

Designer:  Linda Coughlin
