Watercolor Flora & Fauna

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Good Morning!
I had some time yesterday to get into my craft room.
I wanted to try watercoloring these WPlus9 Flora & Fauna 2 images.  Until now, I have just used the images 'as is' stamping the outlines. They look beautiful that way too, but I wanted to wait to try this technique until I had a little quiet and extra patience to take my time and see what I could do.  It's not perfect, by far, but I think it turned out pretty!
I heat embossed my images in white and then
I used distress inks as my medium.  I find that success lies in the patience. Drying in between adding layers of color.
I'm excited to try again!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you're having a great weekend!
Trying a new format with larger photos and text.
