Well…I gave myself a birthday present. Some of the talent I follow offer online classes and after staying away from real watercolor for years ….well it was time to jump back into the water pot. I have enjoyed every minute but now realize it won’t be a walk in the park. The class is Watercolor for card makers intermediate techniques. Most of the lessons are being taught by Dawn Woleslagle. Very talented lady. There are also several other talented young women who really do offer a lot to learn from. Here is my take on the class.
Day 1: Wet is wet and too much is a flood. Lesson here is work on the amount of water on the paper and in the brush. Oh..no.. I don’t have any outline stamps. Maybe a more complete material list would have helped. Plus time to order since there is only Walmart in my area. Any way …my idea didn’t work so on to the next practice. Now…about erasers…..need to learn more about what works with what. Mine smudged. Dawns first real card is called Bonjour . Still learning how to use the brush strokes…here is my version
Turned out pretty well. Simple background. Could use some improvement but it’s ok. Will be in the mail this week to a friend.
