If your curious about why the mess is on display head over to Julia's blog and play along.
there are why and how to pages at the top of her blog.
It's still Wednesday in my world for a few more hours. this week has still been finding me playing with the watercolor pencils and paints. I think so far the attempts look mostly like a third grader colored them but, I think that is just a water control thing right? I dunno yet, the jury is still out on if it will "grow" on me, I like other people's water coloring so, I am hopeful its just a matter of playing with it enough for that to happen. So, monday I seen this cool texture used on something Vicki Gould made that she said was "snow tex" and I had some time to kill tuesday morning between arriving in the city where I pick up the ice for work and Costco opening so, I ran into Micheal's and asked the checker if she had ever heard of it, she had not but, she got on the phone and some mystery person told her it hides in the back corner near the restrooms in their store. I found it, have not opened it yet, I also picked up a little notebook that said it is a mixed media like sketch book. ( the pages look like they will tear out later if you wanted) so, today I was messing around with swirling an acrylic paint dauber on one liked how that looked its in the far top right of this photo. so, started another piece doing the same thing but on watercolor paper and then added some darker green paint to the bottom in streaks started thinking flower meadow here. ( yes, this is really basic no planning behind it ) and the sky was ranger distress stains. and I have since stamped some blooms on it and put one layer of watercolor pencils & water over that. I had stamped these same flowers on just neekid watercolor paper and colored them first with only the pencils and this piece has dried warped and the piece that you see on the table that has the acrylic & stain on it, it has dried flat. ( that's a cool thing to me to see) anyways sorry for the long winded ramble and thanks for stopping by!
