Watercolor Weekend September 15, 2018



Hello Watercolor Friends,

I used two of the little girls from Art Impression's brand new 5053 - WC Little Girls Set to make my card for the bi-monthly Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend Roundup. This scene is reminiscent
of my own granddaughters in their yard. I put one of the girls inside the 4703 - Flower Cart. She would be pink loving Brinley, the youngest, and the older one in the hat, would be Aubrey, my awesome softball player. Their blue house on the hill is from the 4961 - WC Mini Cottages Set. The flowers in the cart are from the 5008 - WC Flower Set 3 and the "lavender" on the ground is from the 4875 - Garden Wagon Mini Set.  The grass is from the 4051 - WC Foliage Set 1.  Ai has just come out with the greatest steel dies in all the usual shapes and sizes perfect for card making!  I used the 5062 - Rounded Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies to make my card.

I'm going to journal in the bible my Dad gave me but I don't have the watercolor ground yet (it's on the way).  Art Impressions now has all the supplies you need to start journaling in your bible.  I used the 5067 - Gates of Righteousness Set which even has four different sentiments included.  I just love this set!  The leaves and grass are from the 5073 - Bible Foliage Set.  The flowers are from the 5074 - Bible Flower Set.

Bookmarks & Tags August 30, 2018



Hello Watercolor Friends,

Be sure and join in on the new Art Impressions Bookmarks & Tags challenge on the Ai blog. You could win a stamp set of your choice and there are a lot of wonderful new stamps now available!

My tag for this launch was made using the tractor from the brand new 5059 - WC Harvest Set. My oldest son who lives on five acres in Colorado, actually has chickens and an old blue tractor. This would be the perfect tag to put on a present for him. I used the chicken from the 4207 - Feathers TF stamp set. The flowers are from 4868 - WC Flower Set 2.

The bookmark was created with my best friend in mind. Her name is Jamie and she goes by J. She loves to read and her daughter has blonde hair. I'm sure she will love it!  I used the brand new 5053 - WC Little Girls Set.  It's probably my favorite stamp set from this new release!  The stool she is sitting on is from another one of the new sets 5055 - WC Sitting Places.  The letter J is from another must have 5071 - WC Serif Letters Set. The flowers are from 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set.

Hello Watercolor Friends,

I made this card for the bi-monthly Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend Roundup using the truck from the 5011 - WC Truck Set and I used the quail family from 4207 - Feathers TF.  As you can see from the pictures, I have quail that travel through my back yard, every spring. Do you see the little baby chick on the log?  They make the cutest sounds and I just love how protective the parents are of their sweet little chicks.  The flower stamps I used are from 4868 - WC Flower Set 2 and the grass is from 4051 - WC Foliage Set 1.  The sentiment is from the set 4903 - WC Sentiments.

Watercolor Weekend August 4, 2018


Hello Watercolor Friends,

I am still dreaming of being on the ocean so I created this card using the cottage from 4606 - Cottage by the Beach for the bi-monthly Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend Roundup. I added little flower boxes under the windows and made the tiny flowers by using the fine tips of the Marvy LePlume II pens. I used the small grass stamp from the 4051 - WC Foliage Set and the tiny dot flowers from 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set for the flowers in front.  I spread some liquid glue and then added real sand to make the beach.

Watercolor Weekend July 21, 2018





Hello Watercolor Friends,

Did you know, the Art Impressions blog features the Watercolor Weekend Roundup every first and third Saturday of each month?  Be sure to sign up and you will get the notice in your inbox.

I always dream of being near a sandy beach and the ocean during the summer time.  I wonder if others feel that way, too? So I made a scene by an ocean using a cabin from the 4962 - WC Rustic Cabins Set. I just sort of penciled in the rocky wall, trail and shore line, then watercolored them using my palette. I used the Molotow 2.0mm masking liquid to leave some white space where my flowers would be.  After it dried, I used the foliage from 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set to add the leaves, wiped off the masking liquid, then painted in the little flowers.  I used part of the fence from the 5011 - WC Truck Mini Set. I used the kite from the 4606 - Cottage by the Beach Set to add that whimsical touch it needed.
