One Powerful Hour - Ocean

I had great fun playing around with the deli paper technique from Marilyn Rock's youtube tutorial.  I used the Lumiere paints as she suggested, but I substituted parchment paper for the deli paper.  I cannot seem to find anywhere to purchase deli paper so I am not sure if the result is exactly the same or not, but I love the huge colourful pieces I ended up with. 

I used a small bit of this today for the One Powerful Hour challenge of 'Ocean.'  I used a  Crafty Secrets stamp set called Seaside.

I am lucky to live a few minutes from the Pacific Ocean on the West Coast of Canada and my favourite place to be is at the seaside.  I hope your day is filled with some beauty and wonder!  Cheers!

  3. Hi Rhonda this is beautiful. If you look at Costco they have the paper in a box of (lots) about 10" square when I last looked.
