Spring has finally arrived here in my neck of the woods and I couldn't be more thrilled! I have a bunch of family birthdays coming up, Easter is just around the corner and then it's Mother's day.
I don't know about you but even though I make bunches of cards it seems I rarely have the ones I need when the time comes to give it and so that means sometimes I end up with *gasp* store bought cards! I knew my Mom would love the florals in Kind Soul, so this year I got started early! For once it my life. No really, this is probably the only time I'll be early this year. I should celebrate.
You may have noticed that this isn't my typical color scheme. I have really been trying to push myself out of my usual bright colors/copic coloring. Not that I don't love it, I do. But I also think it's good to push yourself to try new things. Why?
Because sometimes you end up with cards that look like this. I hope you enjoy watching the watercoloring in the video below.
It really was a struggle not to use Copics. I was scared to mess it up and you know I loathe starting over. I love how even though I used the same colors the top and the bottom still look different. That's the magic of watercolor and it's almost always beautiful!
What's your go to medium? Have you tried breaking out of the box lately? Since Spring has arrived, maybe try moving forward this season with your own new approach :)
