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.

Watercolor Fun, July 18, 2018




Hello Watercolor Friends,

I hope you like my card.  I just  adore the dogs and I need to use them more.  I didn't realize I used retired stamps until I went to add the links.  If you don't have the stone arch set, you could easily use the stone wall from 5019 - WC Wall Texture Set to make an arch over the bench.

See the total list of supplies I used below:

4965 - WC Bench Set - the bench
4959 - WC Dogs Set - the dog
4875 - Garden Wagon Mini Set - the grasses
4867 - WC Foliage Set 2 - the ivy
4051 - WC Foliage Set 1 - the mini grass
(Retired) WC Series 9 Set 2 - 4275 - grapes (as flowers)
(Retired) EZ Project: C - the Stone arch - Q2444

Marvy LePlume II Pens used:

NO. 45 sepia
NO. 15 olive green
NO. 72 pine green
NO. 32 laurel green
NO. 1 black
NO. 86 African violet
NO. 8 violet

4774 - Stamp positioner
4773 - Acrylic Blocks
#4 Paint Brush

I made this on Canson watercolor paper.

Watercolor Weekend July 7, 2018



Hello Watercolor Friends,

I had so much fun making this whimsical card for the Watercolor Weekend roundup.  I used the stump and the stamp positioner to widen the stamp and make it taller.  I used one of the hobbit doors along with that cute little mailbox to make it look like my chipmunks have a home.  It's a play off of Watercolor Wednesday (my favorite day of the week!) Art Impression's Owner/Creator Bonnie Krebs tutorial on YouTube, see it here.  Create one of these cards yourself using any of the animals and any of the flowers and grasses.  I love how they all work together to create whatever scene you can imagine.

5015 - WC Hobbit Door Set
