In May Castle Park starts to come alive with vacationers, visitors, family and friends. So when I saw CanYouCaseIt? challenge I thought this would be perfect for the theme May flowers.

So can you believe this stamped using celery! I cut the stalk and dipped it in yellow acrylic paint. It didn't turn out right plus there were flex of other colors in the yellow. So I let it sit.... for a year.. Then I thought I bet ya the acrylic paint would resist watercolor paints.. So I took it out of my storage box, dusted it off and tried it... WOW!! How dreamy!! I just loved the way it turned out. I just kept mixing blue-greens, yellow-greens, dark greens, light greens for what seemed like a few minutes then I checked the clock and in fact I was doing this for an hour and a half.. Completely transfixed!! Then I saw the stamp to go with it and presto!! there it was... Sponged the edges and added the sentiment... But it wasn't done.. It still needed magic.. So I stamped my little fairy and took to the watercolor again! To balance the composition out I added some leaves and watercolored those as well.. I had to split the celery stamped paper in half so maybe in another year you will see another dreamy background..
I hope you enjoyed your stay with me today... Don't forget to leave a comment good, great, or otherwise.. For those of you in the USA happy Memorial Day.. We will never forget our soldiers sacrifice for this country. Thank you..
All the best,
