Laurie Schmidlin shared her first video for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday, and she did a fabulous job. Her tips and tricks for creating a watercolor wash background were very helpful. Others always made it sound and look so easy. However, I don't think I've watched anyone watercolor and explain in such great detail why and how they do it until Laurie's tutorial. Even though my results aren't anywhere near as good as others, I know I just need to practice and let the watercolors and water do the work. This is what I created earlier today using Emboss Resist with watercolors. A few black splatters with popped up stars and a sentiment flag finished my card.
Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments.
