Cross Canada Blog Hop, January!
Welcome to our January Blog Hop featuring Watercolor Creations. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.
We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers. Whether it was something that you liked or some new technique used that you would like to learn how to do, by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you, now on to our hop!
If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada, then please start at the beginning and join Michelle at My Creations with Michelle. If you came from Kirstin at Crafty in the Country, then you are in the right place!
I wasn't sure if I was going to receive the watercolours in time to participate in this hop but they arrived! So what to create??? As I have not had much experience with watercolours, I decided just to start by seeing how it goes onto the paper. I did purchase the watercolour paper, and it is a little thicker than white daisy. I watched the video by CTMH entitled "Seven Things You Can Do With Watercolor" which is full of very helpful hints and tips.
So now that I have played around with the paints and made a wonderful mess, what to do with it? I decided to make flowers. Using one of my favourite flower shapes from Cricut Art Philosophy, I cut the flowers in a variety of sizes so that I could then create layered flowers. I will now add all these pretty flowers to my embellishment stash and be able to add to them to future cards and layouts! When it comes time to use them I will probably add patterned paper or cardstock layers and will add some type of bling for the flower centers.
I am the very last stop in this hop across Canada but if you are still completing the trip than you next stop is all the way back across Canada in Halifax, Nova Scotia with Michelle at My Creations with Michelle.
Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will feature Cardstock Creations. So mark February 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
