splashes, splats and drips at CountryView Challenges

Hello there! Time for a new challenge at Countryview Challenges - its time to get messy - the theme is splashes, splats and drips. I used a paperartsy set of stamps, inks and paint and had fun!!!
Here's what I did:

I started making a splatty oxide background...

I added my stamping....

used my inktense pencils to colour....

dripped on some paint and splattered with posca.

and finally mounted on to a card.

Hope you can join us at countryviewchallenges!

  13. You should see how my acquaintance Wesley Virgin's biography starts with this SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL video.

    Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he revealed hidden, "self mind control" secrets that the government and others used to obtain everything they want.

    These are the EXACT same tactics many famous people (notably those who "come out of nowhere") and the greatest business people used to become wealthy and famous.

    You probably know how you utilize only 10% of your brain.

    That's really because the majority of your BRAINPOWER is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Maybe this expression has even taken place INSIDE OF YOUR own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head 7 years ago, while driving a non-registered, beat-up garbage bucket of a car without a license and with $3 on his banking card.

    "I'm so fed up with going through life check to check! Why can't I turn myself successful?"

    You've taken part in those questions, am I right?

    Your success story is waiting to happen. You just need to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.

    Take Action Now!
