|Close up of the water with the Distress Mosaic Glaze|
I really love barns and I think a quilt should be painted on all of them. I love how Iowa, where my best friend Jamie lives, has a lot of barns with quilts painted on the barn sides or doors. I'm also a quilter which is another reason why I love barns with quilts painted on them.
The Old Barn stamp set is my most favorite of all of the Art Impressions watercolor stamps. I have used it more than any other except for the Foliage set 1 which is an absolute necessity if you are going to make these wonderful scenes. I added the quilt to the barn by using a ruler and a Micron Pigma Pen. I used Marvy LePlume II Pens - 72 Pine Green, 45 Sepia, 15 Olive Green, 17 Steel Blue, 28 English Red, and 86 African Violet and Strathmore watercolor paper to watercolor this scene. I added Distress Mosaic Glaze to the water to make it look wet.
I gave away some of my "barn" cards and I have a few framed and placed around my house but I am beyond thrilled that the Art Impressions booth will have this card I made as an example at the future Scrapbook Expos. Click here to see the schedule and maybe you can attend a watercolor class near you. I'm still hoping to attend one myself!

so I can make one with barns with quilts on them.
