Watercolour, Cork and Sequins

Morning Friends!

I get these ideas sometimes… they come from seemingly nowhere and won’t leave me until I’ve made it into a tangible project.  This latest idea was to create a watercolour wild meadow with dandelion cut files on top.  I searched all the usual places and even asked my favourite designer if she had anything.  She had one but it wasn’t what was in my head!

So I doodled my own, took a photo and made it into a cut file.  It is not perfect, and it is NOT easy to get off the cutting mat but I got enough off to make it work for me…

I joined 3 together with a simple stitch and then got to work on my background.  I used my watercolour palette which is full of Daniel Smith watercolours.  A little experimenting told me the Azo Nickel Yellow and Kyanite Genuine mix together to make a wonderful green.  I added plenty of splatters – it’s my ‘thing’!

As I was looking through my sequin stash the colour of my cork embellishments caught my eye.  The went with the natural creamy-white watercolour paper and the hues of green perfectly.  I pulled out Wedding Bells, Strawberry Bubblegum and Cork Confetti in chevrons and butterflies.I get the rest very simple; the dandelion heads and painting were enough for me.  I added a simple layer of vellum to the photograph and chose a flair as my title.  I added a sprinkle of my sequins and a couple of butterflies.  I used the chevrons to direct the eye towards the title.

 

Thanks for stopping by today,
