Strawberry Moon

This week we had a rare treat.   The Summer Solstice 2016,  which is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, coincided with June's full moon, called the Strawberry Moon.  This will not happen again until 2062.

This is my artistic interpretation of this event.

I went back to one of the earlier Wanderlust classes to watch application of liquid watercolors.  Now that I own the basic colors from the Artist's Loft, I thought I'd play with watercolor effects.  I used Canson 90 lb. watercolor paper and had available both a brush with water cup and a spray bottle of water.

During the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, I fell in love with this fairy tea cup stamp and was thrilled to be able to purchase it from blog hop super sponsor, So Suzy Stamps. I used Archival Jet Black Ink and stamped on top of the watercolor.

I'm entering this make at:
