Watercoloring with inks

Hello, I'm back again with some projects I made using inks to watercolor. I've always love watercolors. When I do art projects at work with the children and when it comes to painting I always prefer watercolors. It's quick, easy, dries fast, and the projects always look beautiful. Okay, what I'm sharing is a little bit of a cheater method. I used stamps and then watercolor the stamped image. But I love it!


This is watercoloring on cardstock. 


More on watercoloring on cardstock for mini cards.


I made these tags on watercolor paper, which is better to watercolor on. This is a fun technique and I look forward to creating more watercolor projects.

Yay! I completed another quilt block yesterday! This was probably one of the easiest blocks I've done so far. I like the simplicity of it. I'm still having trouble lining up the side strips, but I'll keep sewing, it's got to get better.


Have a beautiful day!

Update on my quilt blocks

Hello friends!

I just wanted to give an update and share my quilt block with the Bloom Sew Along over at Lori Holt's blog, Bee in My Bonnet.



I've been trying to keep up but not very good at it. It seems between my papercrafting, sewing, my job and family life, it's been a challenge to make time. I'm hoping I can be more organized and caught up, so we shall see. I've been sewing a lot for the past couple of days and have two of the blocks done. I love these fabrics and it was fun putting them together. 





I had a few issues, but I'm not perfect. I already have block seven ready to by appliqued, so it should be quick and then I can work on block eight and be caught up ..... I hope. I'm already missing my paper crafts, and I received my order a few days ago with more stamps and other supplies. I look forward to sharing soon, also I want to continue with my scrapbooking. I love photos, especially my childhood family photos and I want to get them scanned and then put in an album.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.

Paper Pumpkin is turning 3!



Celebrate with a limited-edition for your March kit. To receive March's kit be sure to sign up by the 10th of March.


I love receiving my Paper Pumpkin, because sometimes (most times!) I don't have time to make a card. Well, my Paper Pumpkin comes in just in time and there is always something I can make on the fly. My daughter also looks forward to seeing what's in the mail! This also makes a great gift for someone who loves to craft. 

Here are are some cards I made with my February kit, "Hello Sunshine". The first two cards are sample cards you can make.



Of course, you don't have to make those cards, you can switch it up and make your own cards, tags or pocket cards with the supplies. Here are a couple of alternate cards I made, they're pocket cards, they measure 2" x 3" that can easily fit in your Project Life albums or you can put in your pocket card projects.



Thank you for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
