Day 3- #90daysofblogging
Been up most the night, moreso because I didn't have PC access during the day. I feel like I am catching up! Will probably run a few errands tomorrow. Make some paper, literally! Do some laundry if I am lucky and finish a few projects. Would love to do some sort of altered key or hat pins. I don't use that stuff, but I think it's pretty. Might be nice to include in a pocket letter too. I feel like I need to make like 10-20 of those and send them out, but I won't say to who.. in case I never get around to doing them :: laughs:: Pocket letters require me to think too much and I just don't wanna think at all! ::laughs again:: I am altering a toy guitar and frankly.. It's not coming out like I pictured it! I am still tweaking it though. I feel like I can do more. Make it look, like I want it to.. but my timing is ALL OFF!! (shoulda started this 6 months ago)
Anywho today I want to show you some watercolor cards that I have worked on previously.. Just decided to add some pen doodles/details. The watercolors I prefer at this present time are Sakura Koi Watercolor Sketch Travel Pan Set with 24 paints . I was first introduced to these paints by the fabulous Joanne Sharpe. Joanne uses a color palette that hugs my heart and makes my eyes twinkle. The only thing that would make me switch to another set of watercolors is if they offered neon colors. ::feeling perky at the thought:: (#hoHO.. #Paula.. ::giggles::) Koi will ALWAYS be my #1 goto for watercolors. They are inexpensive and every place I would go to buy them from.. take coupons! (HA!) I constantly try different types of watercolors, but I will tell you.. I will most definitely compare them to my Kois. I am not a water colorist. I am still learning and probably will be learning for a long time! :: laughs::
Here are the cards I mentioned..
The pen I used in the pictures was a Unibal Signo UM-153 Bold. No longer made in the US, but available for purchase on ebay, www.jetpens.com and few other retail stores.
The ONLY pencils I want are Caran d' Ache (sp) to try.
As always thank you for your time....
