Go Where You Feel Most Alive -- Playing With Wendy Vecchi's Make Art Blendable Dye Inks



Hello friends and visitors! Today I'm sharing a tutorial at Frilly and Funkie for our weekly Saturday Showcase feature. I'll be shining the spotlight on Wendy Vecchi's Make Art Blendable Dye inks and sharing my techniques for making this gorgeous background and these life like leaves and bark. I hope you'll join me there!

As always, I'm thrilled you are here! Thank you for all your amazing comments! They make my day!

Hugs and Blessings!
Sara Emily

Country View Challenges August 2018 - Sun, Sea and Sand This is reminiscent of and inspired by my recent hiking 'holiday' to Capon Springs, WVa. In fact, the bracket fungus was harvested from a dead tree found on one of our hikes.
SumMore Fun Mood Board Challenge #35 I was inspired by the colors and the tiles.
Scrapy Land Challenge #96 Anything Goes  I used a Sizzix die set.

  1. Your tag is so lovely, Sara Emily, and it's a great project for your Saturday showcase! I love how the bird looks to be sitting on those gorgeous and realistic-looking leaves. Your wood grain looks amazing, as always. I love the colors you used - didn't know Wendy had new inks out, so I'll have to check that out. Well done, Sara Emily! Hugs!!
