Even as a seasoned card maker, I enjoy learning tips & tricks from other crafters. My favorite tip/trick is one that applies to all of us whether we are stampers, colorists, diecutters: create something every day. If all we do is look at our pretty crafty supplies, or run our hands through a cup of gorgeous sequins, but never use them….we’ll never learn our craft! So even on days when I make something totally ugly – I make sure I make something.

Watercoloring Simple Tulips by Sandy Allnock

While wanting to do a comparison between the old and new Quinacridone Gold paints (the planet recently ran OUT of the pigment for the old one, and Daniel Smith engineered a replacement)….if you know me, I got bored just doing swatches. Let’s paint something! How about tulips, since Easter and Mother’s Day are around the corner?

Hope you found these tulips bringing a little sunshine to your spring – Easter and Mother’s Day are on the way!
