Playing with Watercolors

This is not my first adventure playing with watercolors, but it's been a while and when my mom asked me to make some cards without a sentiment, I thought it was a good time to get messy.

I used a flat sponge, a round sponge and a semi-wide brush to create these cards

No trick photography on these, the paint colors really are that vibrant

I tried to photograph a third card, but the dimensional glue I used on the sequins was not try, and that just doesn't look good.  So I will try another photo in the AM when the light is good and see if that turns out.

I have a couple of challenge cards I'm working on, and I can just finish them I'll be sure to share them.

I've been busy recently -- we took an overnight trip up to Seattle and this was one of my favorite moments

If you've seen Chihuly's glass work in person, then you know how stunning it is!  It was a family favorite.  We also visited the Space Needle, EMP, and the Seattle Aquarium.  And I won't even get started on the food...yum!!
