Water coloring with The Sweet Stamp Shop

Happy Sunday!!!
So I had a little crafty time this morning and wanted to break out this new set I got from the Sweet Stamp Shop called Cheeky and elegant sentiments. I have been wanting to try new things lately and one of those things has been alot more water coloring. I had a few questions on how I do my water coloring and I have found that the easiest way for me is using my distress markers.  To have more control over where my color goes I scribble my marker color onto my acrylic block and I dip my watercolor brush pen into some water and than into my color on my block and to add more color I just dip into the color on my block several times until you get the look you are going for.  I hope that helps a little what is great about water coloring is you do not have to be perfect with it and that is what I love and also I feel that I can blend my colors better and nicely doing this technique!! To finish of my card I just used a black pen a scribbled some lines to frame my scene.
Have a great day!!

My first mixed media canvas

Happy Friday!!!
I am pretty excited about my project today.  I have been admiring all the mixed media projects that I have seen lately and I wanted to give it a try!!
I thought the easiest way to do this project was to go small to begin with until I feel a little more comfortable in what I am doing.

All products used as far as color goes are from design memory Crafts Faber Castell I used the gelatos and big brush markers.  The stamps are from Unity march KOTM.

So I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope to be sharing a little more of these kinds of projects in the future just to mix it up a bit around here.
