It Never Rains?

Happy Monday friends! My kids are back at school after a wonderful two weeks off, now I start the countdown to summer vaca. I know what's the rush? I just love having no set schedule. And I do like my kids home with me :)

Any way, I'm here with a challenge that I did for both a music challenge and More Than Words. Are you familiar with them? Click on their title to check it out. They do a main and a mini challenge. The talent is truly off the chain! This month the prompts were Bliss/gesso. Have a look at my layout.

Can you see the raindrops on the Bird of Paradise above? They're such gorgeous flowers. After a rainfall everything is so clean and clear, I found my walk inspiring and truly blissful.My layout started out with a coating of clear gesso, which I love when you're adding mists to it.Then some texture paste/stenciling and lots of misting fun. The flowers I've had for a few years and they got some Lindy's spritzed on em and my butterfly was stamped painted with Colour Arte then Utee'd. I love the glass look it gives. I think the whole layout exudes a rainy feel.

The music challenge is over at, the person who signs up after you posts the song you need to use for inspo. Mine was It Never Rains In Southern California, and that song is spot on about the weather here. It never does, but when it finally happens it's a darn national disaster! I was on my walk with a light drizzle and I took these pics of these pretty flowers. I also did a video -
