Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
There's still time to join in at CAS Mix Up.
We're doing watercolor this month and Loll has challenge us with...
Our talented Design Team is joined by our Guest Designer, Brenda,
and there's wonderful inspiration there.
To make this piece, I liberally
wet Arches Watercolor paper and dropped in Gansai Tambi Watercolors
and let the color move. I sprayed with Shimmer Mist to add some sparkle and
help the color move some more.
When it was completely dry, stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.
The seagulls were die cut and colored with Arteza watercolor pencils
and a waterbrush.
I mounted the finished piece on piece of foam then onto
the back of a mixed media pad cover.
Hope to see your beach cards in the gallery at
Challenge closes on the 24th.
