Aurora Wings Challenge #74

Hello! Today I am sharing a project for the 2nd half of the Aurora Wings Challenge #74, which is Anything Goes. I decided to not create a card, but rather continue with my 6" x 6" mini album of Sprites. I have created quite a number of these pages before, but it's been a while, so this was the perfect opportunity.
 I chose to work with the lovely Linnea Sprite. I used my Koi watercolors by Sakura on Canson Mixed Media Paper. I went for a very watery look on her, and I think it worked out well. I am still new to working with this palette, but I'll get better with it as I get to use it more often.
 After I finished painting her, I looked through my stash of 6" x 6" papers, and came across Lemoncraft's Fresh Summer paper pack. The colors were just what I wanted. I inked the edges of my torn-edged sentiment, and I also added a few sequins from the "Pretty in Pink" Sparkle Bend.
Because the paper is so lovely, I didn't really need to do much to complete the page. It was nice to make something bigger than a standard sized card, and I think it's high time I got back into doing other types of projects beyond cards. I hope you will join in for the "Anything Goes" challenge with Aurora Wings. You have until February 15, 2019 to play along. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Oh I just adore the watery look you've achieved with your paints, Alison! Linnea Sprite looks like something right out of an Impressionist painting. Yummy colors on the page and I love the torn edge detail of the sentiment and magical sequins. Can't wait to see more pages. Fabulous! xxD
Love how cheerful and uplifting this is, Alison. The watercolor coloring looks BEAUTIFUL on the Linnea Sprite. I love the bleed effect! The color palette of fuchsia, green, and yellow has such a lovely psychological effect of cheering me up. Thank you for this happy and lovely inspiration for today's mid-challenge post at AWCB.

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…
