I was reading a post a couple of weeks ago where someone talked about taking an online watercolor class for card makers and thought that might be interesting. Although I have never been very artisiic, I thought that might be fun, Actually I don’t have an artistic bone in my body. When I took art class in high school (it was required), I figured out that if you ask the teacher questions on how to draw or paint something, she would come over and do it for you. I made it through the whole semester that way. I think she may have caught on by the end because I ended up with a C in that class. At least I passed! I
n any case, I decided to sign up for this online class. It is actually a lot of fun. The class took place in 2014 so I missed out on all the giveaways, forum conversations and sharing my creations, but I am really glad I signed up for it. They use various artists to show you different techniques. Of course, these artists make it look so simple. So far I have gone through the first two classes which were on watercolor backgrounds. By the way, in case I forget later on, here is the link for these classes. Check it out. You have access to videos and PDF’s for life so you can go back for ideas later on.
So here is my first watercolor creation.
I used a stamp set from the 2016 Occasions Catalog called Helping Me Grow. I actually bought this set specifically for this technique. The colors I used are Cucumber Crush, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point.
