Thank You

Hi! Happy Wednesday! I guess the upside to a holiday on Monday is the week goes very fast! I have been having fun playing with distress colors! It's funny how I got into art because I was attracted to mixed media, rushed out and bought all the supplies and there they have sat...waiting patiently for me to play with them! Well I'm remembering how much I love to create . Don't get me wrong. I have loved creating with pretty paper and embellishments and will continue to do so, but there's something about making everything from scratch and getting your hands all inky that's so fun and relaxing at the same time!

 
 I started with watercolor paper and took some ink and spread it on my craft sheet,  dipped my water brush into the ink and let it pool on the paper and go where it wanted. I used a pink, orange, and yellow. A very simple technique! I love the softness of the colors with hints of darker color too! :-)
 



Have a great week! Hugs, Char
