Hello! It is a beautiful Sunday morning here in Perth! A little overcast, which is quite normal this time of year! I love Autumn in Perth!
For my Artisan Design Team Project for April 2022, I was assigned the very beachy Paradise Palms Bundle! It totally puts a person in a holiday mood! Today I wanted to share a little bit of my creative process with you.

Today I wanted to share a little bit of my creative process with you…
I knew what colour combination I wanted to use and I used that as my start off point… I created my background layer first with Petal Pink and Pool Party ink for the sky and water – I made two of these as the assignment was for two samples. I made only on ‘beach’ piece that I shared between the two cards. I love adding interest with torn edges and I thought that this would work with the relaxed feel of the stamp set.
I used Garden Green and Early Espresso for the Palm Trees, Cinnamon Cider for the coconut clusters and Pumpkin Pie for the sun. I inked, spritzed and stamped all the pieces to my hearts content! Boy did I have fun! In the end I only used some of the pieces but I am certain they will be put to good use in a future project (or two)!
The greeting looks like it was written in the sand (thank you Patty Bennett for the great idea).
I hope this was helpful! Let me know if it was total gibberish! In the end I think the most important part for me was having fun with my favourite watercolour look!
