I'm going to show my ignorance here... I didn't know there was a Peace Day. Turns out, there's a World Peace Day, and an International Day of Peace. I'm all about letting my inner hippie out, though, and peace-ing out today.
I've been wanting to try Drew Barrymore's Flower brand for a while, and this lovely came in my Allure Beauty Box! This is Good Bud-dy, a groovy teal blue.
I wanted a colorful, but distressed look for my background, so I went with the grunge technique, popularized by Chalkboard Nails. I used Cult Nails New Day (yellow) and Evolution (peach) and Finger Paints Get Real-ism (purple) for the soft, floaty...peaceful.. background.
Doves are the symbol for peace, right? And I happened to get this image on my new set of stamps from Winstonia. I stamped this with Milani White On The Spot and Winstonia W205.
I also hand-drew a peace sign. OMG, circles are HARD, y'all.
Glitter, on the other hand, is easy. China Glaze Fairy Dust gives my doves an ethereal glow...
Does this say "Peace Day" to you? Or does it just say, "Peace sign, bird, stripey colors, bird, bird, glitter?"
I really like that grunge technique. So easy - just use an almost dry brush to paint bits of color.
Bottle shot: Flower Good Bud-dy, Cult Nails New Day and Evolution, Finger Paints Get Real-ism. Milani White On The Spot, and China Glaze Fairy Dust.
Did you know about Peace Day? I think I'll celebrate with a cocktail and a hammock, which sounds peaceful to me. What about you?
