Just breathe

This is my reminder post for the Time Out Challenge.  We have a lovely inspiration photo for you:
I really wanted to focus on the canvas hanging on the wall.  So, I used some watercolor paper and some of my SU! dye inks to water color a similar "canvas".  Then I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and finished everything off with some little bird stamps.
Once again, I used some burlap as a mat to add that texture in.

Thanks so much for stopping by and Thanks a whole bunch to the TO team for having me guest design alongside them.

Stamps; Stamplorations Say It Big: "just breathe"; Repeat Impressions "Sandcastle" but I used only the birds in the image.

You did an amazing watercolour background, just as good as the painting on the wall. The birds add to the relaxed feeling if the photo. And great to see you got in the texture again. Thanks for being a great GD x
