Welcome to my stop on the Pretty Pink Posh hop! Paulina is celebrating 5 years – she’s just 6 months behind me, I just realized we started our businesses half a year apart!

My project uses the Crocus Flowers and Courage sentiment – in loose loose watercolor! If you’ve struggled with loose painting, I’ve got some encouragement in the video that might shake you from being so tight!

Paint a loose background – then if you paint out of the lines it really won’t matter at all. It’ll just be some extra pretty splatter!

If you need something different to shake you up creatively, try a different format for a card – long skinny, 5×7, something other than your usual!

Be careful using gouache-tupe pigments that are opaque or semi-opaque; if they cover the black stamped lines, use the paint in a thinner fashion. “Tea” as we’d say in Watercolor Jumpstart Class!

Public Service Announcement: A follower recently mentioned something odd going on with purchasing Daniel Smith paints at some Michael’s stores – forcing customers to buy multiple tubes of a color in order to get a particular price, saying the manufacturer requires it. That sounded too weird, so. I checked in with my friends at DS; they hadn’t heard of this, but are tracking down the source to be sure that stops. If you’ve had this experience at a store, can you email and let me know?

(thank you!)


Of course you’ll want to leave comments on the blogs for prizes right? Paulina is giving away $25 gift certificates to NINE people who comment during the blog hop.

NOTE: another post (no video) will be live at 9…be sure to pop back in!
