Once again I have been playing on the playground with Sandra Evertson's Relica's and Artifacts. 
You can find the most beautiful magical things there! 
I painted this "Papillon" butterfly just simply using Neocolor II watercolor crayons and Tim Holtz and Prima rub-ons.  I used the packing material from archival blanks to wrap around the body and topped it with flower rub-on.  I am truly enjoying the different ways in which to use the Relics and Artifacts, the possibilities are just endless. If you go to Sandra Evertson's site, you will see some magnificent creations. You are also invited to join the Relic's and Artifacts Tribe on face book where you will not only see some fabulous works but some great tutorials and share pages on tips and techniques for different products. You can find this butterfly and more of my creations in my Etsy shop. (see sidebar).
I just couldn't help myself when going through my shells and then seeing this face in her collection, they just kind of merged together like they were meant to be.

I'm pretty in love with this little shell person and he's a perfect example of the magical places her products will take you. I hope you will take a look and now I am off to make more shell people.

  This little guy inspires me in my studio and will even hold my paint brush!
Stay Inspired, Follow your heart, Live your passion,
Find Joy in the Ordinary.
