One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Watercolor Class Days 7-8-9

One thing I have learned about water coloring is that they need to dry
between petals or leaves...just so they don't bleed!
so I start one, set it aside, start another, go back add a petal or so, then continue.
 
therefore I have 4 to show you today!
This is DAY 7
FAUX Hand Painting!
I used Sweet Life...two steps of it so that I could leave some white space.
this was demonstrated by Joni Andaya.
You need an outline stamp, distress ink, markers or memento inks.

DAY 8 Tasnim Ahmed More Faux Hand Painting
And outline stamp was used, this is a Hero Arts stamp and distress inks were used.
I put down clean water first, then dabbed in the colors.
DAY 8 by Laura Bassen...she used this die cut, laid down the negative and colored in between.
A pretty simple card, just need to be sure your brush is not too wet so that it runs under your
"stencil".  Water color paints were used for this card.
DAY 9
Jennifer Rzasa splattered paint and it made a tree?  Really?  I had to do it about 4 times!!  I added the little blue bird just because...!! 
 
Okay, that is it for me, I may be back later as I do have some more in the works!
Hope you all have a great day and only two days left in this work week, if ya'll work!
Me?  I don't work!!  So I can play a lot!
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
