Playing With a New Paint

First, let me just say that this is yet another example of me starting with NO CLUE where I was going!  That's why so much of what I do, I feel like I need to start over and do it  "right".

The Goal:
Play with a brand of Acrylic paint (Golden) and Matte Medium.  I have never used either one so I had no idea how either one would react.  And I have to say, I don't love how they "act"  ... you can tell, I never was able to get a smooth blend ....  but I do love how vivid the colors are!  So, I choose to just say, THAT is the look I was going for! :-)

I started by folding a plain piece of card stock because I knew I wanted to trim around the bottom of the word "Believe".  That's it, that is the only "direction" I was going in.  Then I kept adding bits and pieces of doodles so I would have another place to try out a different color. Then I got tired of playing and just filled in the left side with a big glob of blue.  As I was looking at it I looked down and saw a 3-d Bee sticker in the self of my coffee table and decided to add it next to the leaf....Get it? Bee-leaf ?  HA!  I know, too corny... but isn't it also too cute (the bee I mean).  

Also, it looks like an envelope to me now so somebody is gonna get a FANCY letter from me one day!  Just add a little glue on the sides and flap, done!
