Another 3rd Birthday

Hello Crafters, 

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

  1. Perspektive beim Malen ist nicht immer so einfach, aber trotzdem kann sich Dein Ergebnis sehen lassen. Und ich hoffe, es war ein schlechtes Buch, in welches Du gemalt hast .. *lach*.
