Day 2! (2 blog posts in a row!)


This must be some kind of record for me! I am truly inspired by this online course I am taking!

But seriously, I can’t believe how much I am learning! These ladies are amazing, and I think the best part is they let you in on all their little “trade secrets” that are so helpful! I am wondering why on earth it has taken me so long to discover this world on online classes! Anyway, here is a pic of my little set-up for these classes – I have my supplies all close at hand and my little tablet on an easel for easy viewing (and so I don’t accidentally upset my water cup all over it! My friend and I discovered a fabulous new technique that way – we called it wine distressing, but that’s a story for another day!)  😉

OCC set up

So today we had videos on 3 more techniques for watercolour backgrounds…I only had time to try one, and it is a total CASE of  the instructor’s (Agnieszka Malyszek) card.  I got to try out my watercolour pencils for this soft, flowy background and even the “ink” splatter is watercolour pencil!

celebrate you

I will have to stop by a store tomorrow and pick up some rubber cement or masking fluid so I can try the other techniques. Not sure if I will be back tomorrow or not, it is dinner at Mom’s after work! (I love when Mom cooks dinner – such a treat!)

That’s it for me tonight, my friends. When you are out there doing what you’re doing please remember:
