I've signed up for the watercolor class at Online card classes and made time this weekend to get to know my watercolors. I bought a set of of 12 Winsor & Newton watercolors at Hobby Lobby (40% off!) and made a chart like so:
This was very helpful because it was hard to tell how the colors would translate onto the page. I also did a bit of experimenting mixing colors as well. I completed the homework assignment and made two plaid backgrounds:
I'm trying to figure out how to use them on a card, but it was fun to play around and I washed more color over an embossed image here:
I'm glad I bought the watercolor set because the colors are so vibrant. I can't wait for class to begin!
My next challenge was this Sunday's sketch at OWH - #222 provided by Donna . I loved this sketch because it was fast to put together and made for interesting cards. Here's my take, which I discovered later didn't follow her card exactly:
Sentiment is by Papertrey Ink Celebrations. The gold embossing didn't photograph well, but it's readable in real life.
Well, on to another work week. I hope I can fit in time to create and hope you can too. Thanks for stopping by!
