WOYWW, Watercolor madness and a lovely ATC from Debbie!

Hello and Good evening my dear friends!

I am a bit late posting - I was working till late and then rushed off to a craft shop to get some watercolor pans! Why you ask? Because I have gone watercolor mad! I signed up for this online watercolor class and I think I really like these techniques so I needed to gear up for them! I have been deciding which ones to buy - there are so many watercolor mediums you can buy pencils, pans, tubes, distress inks...but somehow I always liked the pans so I went for that - ages ago I bought a set of Van Gogh watercolors but I didn't have all the colors I would want so I went and bought new colors but also went a notch up and but the most professional ones called Rembrandt from Talens - ah the pigments are just amazing - you just have to give the pan the tinyest touch with the brush  and you get this amazing rich color which you can spread out so easily and still have that rich color - really enjoying this! In the next few days I will be playing with my new stuff and will show you what I have been doing but for now just have a look at all my watercolors...Those tiny pans are my new ones - love, love, love the colors!


I also found this new die for a dove - I need one for my confirmation cards - people keep asking for them so I had to get another die so the cards are not all the same - as you know I do not make 2 cards identical!
Next I would like to show you a lovely tag and atc with a lovely note from DEBBIE from Tattered Rocks,
Thank you so much Debbie I was so surprised and happy to recieve this lovely gift.....





So that is all from me at the moment I will come back later in the week and show you what I made but as I am quite late I will make this short and sweet.

I have just found out that Julia has been taken ill in Spain on holidays so there is no WOYWW today! So sorry to hear the bad news and I guess if all the WOYWWers wish her well she will soon be feeling better!
My dear Julia thinking of you and I hope you get well soon!
Lots and lots of hugs to all my dear friends .

    Looks like you are having fun with your watercolours. WOYWW is carrying on because of the inspiration julia has given us all. I'm sure there are lots of good wishes on their way to Spain
    Take care my friend

  4. I love watercolour but I haven't tried Rembrandt. The colors look so vibrant and I am tempted to try them. I wonder how much they would cost here.
    How sad that our dear WOYWW queen is not well. Hoping she'll recover as soon as possible.

  6. Oh no, I didn't know she had gotten sick. Poor Julia. I've always wanted to learn how to really paint in watercolor. But I'm not a very good artist with drawing. ~ Brigita
