Just Us Girls Challenge # 356 Watercolor



Thank you for stopping again at the Just Us Girls Challenge.  This is my second week to be the guest over there!  And it has been fun to be with those other amazing designers!
This week it is all about watercolor!!
This technique was one I learned and practiced quite a bit during the Papertrey SAF a few weeks ago.  Kay Miller was the "Master" Water color artist.  If you want to watch her video you can go HERE and try it out yourself!  I am NOT in her league, but I sure had fun playing around with this technique and thought I would put it to use for you in this challenge!
