It's time for a new challenge at CAS Mix Up.
We're doing watercolor this month and our challenge is hosted by my very
talented, special friend Loll.
Make sure watercoloring is the main element of the design.
This is part of a watercolor scene done with watercolor crayons.
They are not my favorite medium for watercolor but I did manage a decent beach scene.
I've stamped the shore birds in the middle of the beach scene,
and sea oats in the corners. Then I decided to cut the piece in half to make two cards.
Here's the other one.
I added some partial embossing of waves in the background for added interest
and popped the designs on foam.
Our Design Team has some awesome beach scenes to share with you.
And we are pleased to welcome our Guest Designer, Brenda.
Hope you'll watercolor a beach scene and join us at
