Saturday mornings are usually busy with everything under the sun and then some. I had the opportunity to chat with my oldest daughter while she got ready for work. We put each other on speaker phone so we could keep moving along. This is what I did during our chat.
With all of the excitement of Sale-a-bration products and the wonderful spring catalog, it is easy to put aside all of the great product in the annual catalog. This set, Watercolor Wings, has been a favorite since it came out. I hadn’t had it put to use lately and thought that was long overdue.
I stamped my ink layers onto watercolor paper this time not quite sure how it would all turn out. The initial stamping was a bit too detailed for the effect I was going for, but I remained patient and kept going. I moved in with the aqua painter and began blending, but still wasn’t satisfied. Perhaps because I had stamped off to get the tones I wanted the ink didn’t want to move around too much.
I thought things were a bit stark still so I came in with pear pizzazz for my background. That really helped out a lot. But the butterflies still weren’t what I wanted. I got a spritzer out and put more water on. Which led to dabbing water off, spraying again, and moving along to the heat tool and doing it all over again. I did finally get a result I liked, but decided to bring out the wink of stella pens, both the clear and gold glitter ones, and put in finishing details. I think it all worked out, but I wasn’t sure for a while. Sometimes watercolors can be that way.
Have a creative day!
