We’d gone on a vacation when we came across an Art store. We went inside and when I came out, I was the happy owner of a watercoloring paper pad. I’m no guru of watercoloring so I just got what seemed good to me – 140 lb cold pressed strathmore watercolor paper. I really like the thickness of the paper. Being a Papertrey Ink cardstock user, it’s hard to be pleased with flimsy papers. When I came home, I ventured with watercoloring using distress inks and I can not tell you how much fun that was!! So much so that I couldn’t stop myself!!

Here’s my first example:


I used a niji waterbrush and various distress inks. Just dab the pad on an acrylic block and pick the color from it.
