I started a Watercolor class today. Online. There’ll be six lessons in all and today was number one. We used re-inkers instead of watercolor paint or pencils and it was fun. I’m a little tentative about the subject and so I’m hoping to find a comfort zone somewhere this week.
Here is my homework:
The lesson involved putting water in an area and then adding some ink to see how the water pulls the color.
This is a retired stamp, but it was the closest in style to the stamp used in the class. I do love this stamp; I think it’s a permanent piece in my collection 😉
I used Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Garden Green re-inkers. It’s so important to order the re-inkers at the same time you order your ink pads. I always make it a point. If I were making a special card for someone and my ink pad went dry I would hate myself. My planning never includes mail turnaround time from SU. I suppose I should re-think my planning, but then there would be no pressure! What fun is that?
Come back tomorrow to see how I fare with Lesson 2. We’ll while away our time until the NEW CATALOG goes LIVE on June 1!
Don’t forget to leave a comment – I can use all the encouragement I can get.
