I had seen a gorgeous loose watercolor painting of a winter scene with aspen trees and was very inspired by it. I thought, that should be easy. Right?! Well, not so much for me with watercolors at the moment. I sketched out the image and tried a wet on wet technique. Then I didn’t let … Continue reading Watercolor Failures of a Winter Scene
Here are a few various crochet projects that I’ve worked on this season. Hope you enjoy the inspiration.
This is Bob. Say Hi to bob. He like salty things and standing in the sun. I like Bob. I actually met Bob on the farm while visiting a friend. However, believe me that Bob in real life was a lot more interesting, albeit not as colorful. For this image, I sketched out my image … Continue reading Bob the Cow
I’ve been getting into watercolor and one of the books I came across was The Art of Creative Watercolor by Danielle Donaldson. She has a fun whimsical style that I like and thought that was a good place to dabble.

The stamp was embossed in black then I used the Karin Brushmarker watercolor markers to color the background and some shadows. The … Continue reading Create A Scene – Forest

The new Polka Dot Pal clear stamps (in general) come with a character, sentiment, elements and sometimes a face or face accessory. They’re going to be great for building scenes and changing up … Continue reading Polka Dot Pals Fern
I often have a hard time tossing out the labels and like to put quick cards together. They’re always colored so nicely too! This is Holly from Whimsy Stamps and she’s adorable. I’m in the process of coloring her up on the side but had to put together this quick card. This and other Whimsy … Continue reading Holly
