I hope you had a good week-end. I certainly did, I spent the whole of Saturday crafting at the community centre. Paper crafting from 2 to 4 pm and making a Christmas wreath from 6 to 9 pm.
I picked water colours for the first session and a tutorial Lindsay posted a while back for my inspiration and this is the final result.
I changed it up quite a bit though, since I wasn't working on water colour paper, I didn't dare use all the splatters, that was just too scary. Also the water colour palette wasn't my own, and it looked so nice and clean, that I didn't dare actually use the mising area, so I picked the colours up directly, which made it all much darked than I had planned. And I also dislike how long I made the path, before it disappears in the distance, and that I didn't make it wider close up.
I think next time, I'll bring my own palette and brushes to mix.
Despite the fact, that I am unhappy with so many details, I kind of like the overall impression and vibrancy.
My wreath, I'll have to show you another day, I didn't take a good picture yet, all finished with the candles on (I left those off for the transport home).
But, to the card: We had another 3rd Birthday boy in my family and since this is the other side of the family, I decided to make it easy for myself and re-create the same Dino card I made a few weeks ago. Those boys will rarely ever meet and certainly not compare cards, so they'll never know.
Also, I really liked how it turned out.
So, here is the first version:
And this is last night's take on it:
Since the images are stickers, I had to use different ones, but otherwise it is much the same.
Have a wonderful day
