Create Your Day . . . Friends with Flair , , ,

 Hi everyone, hope you all had a really great weekend!
Just stopping by with my project that is on the
My Sweet Earth Blog today
Susan K Weckesser Design Team. 
I have used . . .
along with
Pan Pastels
My Minds Eye - The Sweetest Thing Papers.
For those of you who don`t know me, I live in Scotland where . . .

Up on the hills on a Scottish Summers rainy day,
when the fields are all in bloom,
 verges are scattered with wild roaming flowers
and then
the sun tries to push it`s way through the clouds
to cover everything in a golden glow . . .
It`s a sight to behold I promise you!

First up . . . a quick splodge of Maimeri Gesso all over the pages.
 { You can use a brush but I just use my hands to work it in.}
I used 3 sheets of MME papers from the collection to create-
 the wildflowers, the fields of rapeseed and the sky.
Next up it was time for some stamping, snipping out the shapes and fixing in place with a little Maimeri Matt Gel Medium.
Ohhhhh, I doodled the little Bee Hive up above with the busy buzzing bees and snipped out a fence from more paper.

 Next out came the Pan Pastels, followed by a little doodle doodle doo with a fine black liner pen.
But it wasn`t finished yet . . .
 . . . I do like to keep a note of all the products I have used to pop it altogether, just incase I want to re create it onto a canvas.
Here`s a photo of the finished pages and I hope you like my little touch of Scotland!

Linking my project up to Friends with Flair over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.
It`s been a while since I joined in due to work and commitments and I have missed hopping along and seeing so many beautiful creations.

Well that`s it for me today
Thank you so much for taking the time to look.
Till next time
Happy Crafting
