CHA Week - Challenge 4 - WORDS

I love words. Oftentimes, I will read something and it will immediately evoke a feeling and an image - much more vividly than an actual picture.

My challenge for you today is to mimic that. Read the quote - and create something with the image and feeling that it inspires in you...

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. ~John Lubbock

For me, this quote inspired the blissful feeling of a lazy summer day... The Retro BBQ set was perfect....

To get this cool "wet" effect, color your image like normal, and then squirt a thin layer of diamond glaze over the top and leave it to dry. if you get any little air bubbles, just take a sharp pen and pop them. Diamond glaze will not "travel" over the lines so it stays where you put it. The needle tip of this 2 oz bottle is perfect.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!!
