I've been dying to play with the watercolor sheets I bought at last year's Art-is-You in Stamford, Ct. Sally Lynne McDonald was working Joanne Sharpe's booth - Joanne does magic with this stuff - and they both had no trouble convincing me to try them.
I wanted to try something easy first, so I pulled out my favorite JBS line, Wren, and used the patterns that have gorgeous text on them:
I'm using Joanne's own palette of Peerless Watercolors.
I punched out some scalloped circles from the text and just started playing:
It's addicting, really. Without much effort, you get combinations of colors and patterns that look so pretty. And the Wren patterned paper is such a nice heavy cardstock that it held up fine to the watercolor and extra water I used on it. Color on text looks so cool, doesn't it?
I made layered flowers and punched out postage stamp shapes and colored them also.
I added the new sweet JBS Butterfly Sequins with wire. Their little wings can fold up!
Supplies: Wren Wheatgrass / Wren Bird / Wren Mini Pattern Sheet / Wren Blueprint / JBS Everyday Mini Deck Flashcards (New!) / JBS Butterfly Sequin Assortment (New!) / Postage Stamp Cardstock Stickers / JBS/Fiskars Tab Punch / Paper Tape Notebook Grid / Vintage Style Sew On Button
This was a blast. And this kind of paint is NO MESS. Love that. Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Creative Tuesday!
