It's August!! Where did July go?
This month's theme is watercolors and our sponsor is Paper Nest Dolls.
So, grab your paint brushes and get to painting!
I created my scene in my SIL program then printed it on watercolor paper.
I let it sit for 2 days, making sure the ink was really set (not sure how necessary this is, I didn't want to chance ruining my image)
I then used my water color pencils and my water brush to paint my sweet mermaid.
I use 2 techniques, I either take color directly from the pencil tip with the brush or I will color a little line on the paper then spread it with the brush.
I have a really hard time leaving white spaces even when I use markers or colored pencils, I'm working on it.
I found these beautiful buttons at Joann's, I love them so much!
Be sure to mark you calendar for our blog hop coming up on the 12th.
My project is meant to get you in the beach frame of mind.
I'm adding this to the anything goes challenge at Crafty Creations
