  • Love your colors on 11, 12, and 13. Watercolor? Ink?

      Item 11 uses Brusho powders, first painted on for a smoother background color, then sprinkled for accents.

      Item 12 starts with a background of watercolor crayons, then accented with Brusho powders.

      Item 13 is a collage of hand made papers. Some were tinted when I made them (generally with a tiny bit of leftover colored papers). You will see that in the purple area. The yellow area background is watercolor. The spotted later is paper I made from vellum and deli paper scraps. After it dried, I used watercolors for the base, then a variety of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays to make the dots. The texture of the paper, with a little of the wax left in it, helped to make the dots work.

      Thanks for asking!
