Koi Fish

Tonight I did these Koi fish.  I will have to try again. I did one of them with the tutorial from Let's make Art and one with the live show. 

Maybe the third time will be the charm.

Treat holder

I did these simple treat holders at the recent card class I taught.  It is made over a Merci chocolate.  I learned it from the Paper Pixie.  The link is below

Watercolor Feathers

I have kind of fallen in love with making these feathers. I see a lot more in my future. They are fun to use to practice techniques.  I learned to do them from Let's Make Art.  Here is a like to the video.

Here is my first one 

And there were two

I did them on a couple of pages. I was practicing more than trying to make a single piece 

After doing the poppies, I had so much red out, I did a red one. 

Resist cards continue

I have made a lot of these resist cards. I still love doing them. 

The words are a die I got. I am not sure who made it.

Father's Day Cup

I hope putting a video here works.  I made this for my dad for Father's Day. I had painted it and then baked the cup in the oven to set the paint. I had to be careful what cup and paint I used. I am hoping it will last for a while. 

Watercolor Poppies

I am taking a watercolor class from Let's Make Art.  I will not be posting the painting I have done so far in order but I thought it would be good to document the work here. 

The first picture is an in progress painting.  I was shocked how easy the poppies are to do.  Just paint to opposite petals with a small white space between. Let that dry. Then go back with a brush with just water and add the other petals. 

This next photo was the final painting. 

I had so much paint on the pallet I did these too.  I will use them on a birthday card for work. 

Let's Make Art also does Let's Make Art Matter- They send a watercolor postcard with their monthly kit. It is addressed and stamped to be sent to someone who could use some support.  This was my version of the card she made.
