Favorite Watercolour Colours of 2018

Hey all, I am back with my first Youtube video of 2019! I am featuring my favourite “Unique” colours of last year out of my watercolour collection.

Now remember, these are not my most used colours of the year, I can definitely do that video for you all, if there is any interest. But these are special, or unique colours that I have discovered in 2018.

Sketched Flowers

Hey all! I have lots of things and goals I want to accomplish this year, and part of it is branching out and working with other companies. So today I decided to play along with Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge. This weeks theme is Something New, which made it pretty easy.

I pulled out a brand new set, that I haven’t used yet from Simon Says Stamps called Sketched Flowers. I also used a new watercolor to me Daniel Smith’s Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.

I had so much fun painting this piece and playing with some colours I haven’t used much, or at all before.

I decided to pull out my watercolours and paint up this adorable little mouse. Once the card front was painted it felt like something was missing, so I pulled out some of my metallic paints and added a little shimmer to the glow of the lantern.

You will see these new images in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs! You’ll see the list of Krafty design team members and Krafty Guests below and be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop!!
