Watercolor Wednesday: Floral Bouquet


Hi everyone! I'm bringing back my Watercolor Wednesday videos. I've been watercoloring since I got my first set of watercolor markers in 2014 about 6 months after my 4th child was born. I feel like I should be better with this medium I love so much by now so it's time to practice more. I will be sharing this practice with you each wednesday with short, simple videos on my YouTube Channel with little or no voice over. I don't feel like I can properly explain my process when I'm still very much learning it myself! I hope you will still enjoy these videos though and like, share and subscribe when you do!

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share with you an easy Plan with Me video using new planner stickers by The Greeting Farm! You know TGF is near and dear to my heart - I have loved them from the very beginning of my crafty start. When I was asked if I would do some planning videos for them, I said absolutely! You can check out both videos on The Greeting Farm's YouTube Channel or scroll to the bottom of this post to see the video for today.


I really love these new planner stickers. You can find them exclusively on Etsy right now. Run and grab them because they are so stinking adorable! They honestly make planning my month out super fast and my page looks adorable when I'm done. 


I wish I looked so cute and happy doing my chores. haha


Prismacolor Pencils:
Skin- Eggshell, Light Peach, Peach Burnt Ochre, Blush Pink
Hair- Deco Yellow, Canary Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Goldenrod, Burnt Ochre
Dress- Deco Pink, Blush Pink, Pink
For highlights and blending, I use a Luminance White Pencil

In this month's spread, I couldn't resist adding the Aries girl from the latest Red Rubber kit Hairoscope. All 12 zodiac symbols done up in TGF style. YES! I linked below where you can find them - don't wait though if you love this stamp, these red rubber kits are always limited edition and so popular. I think we ALL love a throwback to the good old days of red rubber stamps! They go on preorder and then there are only a small amount left over. The Greeting Farm is currently sold out but may have some more in the shop the week this blog is published. Otherwise, you can find them at the shops linked below.

**As a Guest Artist for Ranger Ink, I receive product in exchange for my posts. This post may also contain affiliate links when possible at no cost to you. Clicking on these links helps me continue to bring you great content and I thank you for your support!**



Hi friends! I'm so excited to be back with my first Ranger Ink Guest Artist post for the year! I pulled out some of my all time favorite Dina Wakley products and fell in love with a new paint color while creating this page. I love when that happens. It's one of her original colors I believe as well. Nothing like falling in love with something old and making it new again. I did some gel printing for this page using her brand new WHITE journal tags. I think I've been waiting for these to fall in love with tag making, too! haha 

To see the full project including the step by step tutorial,  please visit the Ranger Ink Blog! I also have a full process tutorial available on my Youtube channel or you can watch below!

Scrapbook.com Tim Holtz Travel Stamp Platform First Impressions Video and Card

**As an affiliate with Scrapbook.com, I sometimes receive product in exchange for my posts. This post may also contain affiliate links when possible at no cost to you. Clicking on these links allows me continue to bring you great content and I thank you for your support!**


Hi everyone! I'm here today sharing a fun card I created using some supplies sent to me from Scrapbook.com! I recently became an affiliate with them (YAY!) and the asked if I would like to try out the Tim Holtz Travel Stamp Platform. I love stamp platforms and was curious about this one so I said absolutely. I love the small size - really perfect for taking along to crops or if you're like me, just not taking up so much space on your Ahem, messy desk! ;) The two cool features I find unique is there are no edges on the side or top allowing you to use full size card bases in the stamp positioner to add images and sentiments easily for one layer cards without working about the card getting bend in the door. The other feature I love is it is super easy to lift the door from the hinge to switch sides depending if you are using rubber stamps or clear stamps - both fit perfect in this stamp positioner! All in all, this has been a great additional tool in my craft room and I look forward to using it with more projects!


I decided to create a card with the Travel Stamp Platform and did a little Oxide Ink Blending on my card base as well as watercoloring this absolutely FUN stamp set by Art Impressions. I just love these ladies and this image went perfect with all the sentiments in the Scrapbook.com stamp set called Best Friends Forever.



I hope you enjoy the video either here or over on my YouTube Channel today! Thank you so much for stopping by today. 

Until next time, Stay Inspired, be Creative and Share that with others!

Sketching and Watercoloring a Peacock



Last month, I tried to follow the Doodlewash watercolor challenge prompts..actually it was in JANUARY! oh my, I just realized, hello, it's March...anyway, I digress...ok, so I try to follow their prompts and failed miserably - made it about 5 days. LOL This peacock was one of those days...I filmed it and really wasn't proud of it but I thought it would be ok to share because I'm not perfect, I'm still learning this beautiful medium I love so much and I did learn something valuable lessons during this session that I want to share:

1. This 4x4 field journal has watercolor paper in it but not both sides of the paper accept water and pigment the same. So in a two page spread like this, you can really see the difference between the left and right hand sides.

2. Using a water soluble graphite pencil you lose the lines fairly quickly - which I did want when I went into it but I didn't realize how much I'd lose right away making the painting even more difficult.

3. Sometimes it's ok to do wet on dry. I love wet on wet and I tried to do this entire painting wet on wet which turned to mud in a lot of places. I've since learned to love the process of glazing.



Let me know what you think about this type of video. I'd love to share more videos this year and not having to do a full voice over would help me be able to get more of these types of videos out to you but I'd love to hear from you.
