Drip, Drip, Drip April Showers........over at Frosted Designs

It was my turn to choose the theme over at Frosted Designs and as we are nearly into rainy April, I shall say no more!!!
I started off by gessoing a 12"x12" canvas, then adding layers of drips of paint, starting with the darkest colour first, and finishing off with pearl to tome down the dark colour, and also add some sheen.
After the last layer of paint had dried, I added some iridescent sequins for some shimmer, then spritzed over again with the pearl.

The BoBunny papers in the Enchanted kit are just stunning, and this beautiful birdbath with birds, was just perfect. I added a sentiment from Kaisercrafts Blue Bay stamps, and after distressing the edges, matting it off centre it onto another piece of paper from the same sheet, added it to the canvas.

Then it was a case of adding some of the gorgeous embellishments from the kit along with a few from my stash. Had to use a clock face as it fitted the sentiment so well.

So lets see drips on your projects, paint, mica, rain or even coffee, leave us a direct link to   your project, then we can pop over and have a closer look, and don't  forget as always we have a fabulous prize up for grabs!
