Water Colours

Dearest Minions,

Good day, this is my water colour entry for Try it on Tuesday. I have several attempts at this using different styles.

The top one is made using staz on for the image then slapping water on the paper and highlighting with distress ink. Rachel Jackson produced an article on this in Craft Stamper ages ago. I really love this so have framed it, the MINEMINE MINE! took over.

I also tried embossing distress inks and then water colouring as above, unfortunately my clear embossing powder let me down and I ended up with what looks like spilled coffee over a church (centre). I fiddled with this and it now looks better than it did, more shaded than beverage. I then tried using water colour pencils on the last embossed image and I rather like it, the leaked ink gives it an old smugged look.

Hi EE, nice to hear from you. I've been out the loop lately. Great to be back. I love looking at your blog posts. I like the 3rd of these pictures, I like the smudgyness of it. I'm looking forward to making more arty journal pages too. Michelle xx
