the past few days have been a bit, "bleh"
i needed something to preoccupy my mind.
i saw this video tutorial by Amy Tan on the Studio Calico blog and
thought, "this is it. easy & fun"
let's do this.
Amy gives you step by step instructions on how to get this look.
you have to be freestyle about it or it won't work.
i chose not to water down a lot of the mists b/c i liked the deeper color.
i also added some Studio Calico shine for some shimmer!
i just had these watercolors at home. i probably picked them up at WalMart or Michael's.
i played around with color and even "wrote" with my paint brush. as you can also see, i had a pad of
watercolor paper laying around that i cut down to 4x6. i am planning on using these as journaling/insert cards for Project Life.
i didn't like how the heart turned out on the card below, so i cut it out and am planning on attaching it to the family strip above.
the funny thing was...the whole time i was doing this
i was giggling because i remember how much i HATED art in school!!
art, reading, etc were never disciplines that were encouraged in my home.
i was always a strict math/science girl.
it's funny to see how i have changed over the years and leaned more towards creative stuff.
i still LOVE math & science, but the other side of my brain is getting a good workout as well. :)
one last share...
Happy Wednesday!! :)
