Time For Learning Watercolor Techniques....

From October 2014 'til now my life has been ever so busy with many other activities(such as enjoying my sweet 3 year old grandson as much as possible) ~ alas my blog has been VERY quiet!  I'm still here...alive and well!

My quiet time has found me using a few spare moments to learn the basic techniques of watercolor painting!  Soon I will share from my stash of practice pages.  Love the experimentation & being able to use it in my mixed media projects!!  

The following are little snippets of birds from Dina Wakley's "Scribbly Birds" ~ stamped images with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink on 140# coldpress paper and then I watercolored the images.  SO FUN!!!  One can color each bird in any way one's heart desires ~ realistic or not!

YouTube has so many talented watercolor artists that willingly share video tutorials for watercolor painting techniques.  As if you have your very own personal instructor!  AMAZING!!!

With today being a celebration of my birth 63 years ago, I am SO VERY EXCITED to have this opportunity to apply many things I have artistically learned over my lifetime to this recent endeavor!  Truly one is never too old to learn!  OH YAY!!!
Sweet blessings to each who read my infrequent & quirky posts....Joyfully, ~Sandie
