Seize The Birthday - And The Paintbrush
It's time for another Seize The Birthday challenge, and this week it's Anything Goes.
As well as the year-long online mixed media course that I'm taking, last week I started an online watercolouring course. The project was to make a 30-page book from watercolour paper (including bookbinding it) then draw and paint images in the book. I started making the book, then decided to make a second one, so I'm running two books at the moment - it's going to take me forever to finish them! While I was waiting for the paint to dry in both books I stamped CityGirl onto some watercolour paper in Antique Linen Distress Ink and watercoloured her. (I stamped another one in black and watercoloured her too, so she may make an appearance soon.)
For my background I used another sheet from my stash of Gelli Plate prints and mounted it onto hot pink card. I like the contrast of the hot pink and the grungy print. I watercoloured another strip of paper then stamped the sentiment in grey and stitched it to the panel, then mounted it onto the prepared card.
I'm entering this into Inkspirational - She Art.
