Hello everyone!  Hope you are doing awesome and enjoying your summer.  I just returned over the weekend from an awesome family vacation overseas.  I had a great time but I am glad to be home – I miss my dogs when we travel and also miss my crafting time, but I am so thankful for the opportunity to go and to spend time with family.

Today I am sharing a video I made several weeks ago using one of the amazing images from Sasayaki Glitter shop.  I chose Image #84 Under Water.  My video, which can be found here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFqaOtOEsB0&t=516s, shares some of my coloring techniques and some details on the easal card variation I made for this project.  Hope you will check it out and let us know what you think!
