Polkadot Octopus


I'm still on the Beatles' theme, y'all.

What song am I thinking of now. ;)

Catherine Pooler Mug Shots sentiment, Hero Arts Paper Layering Octopus, Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Hexagon, Papertrey Ink Geode Layers die, Brutus Monroe Neon Aqua Pigments/Brass & Silver Hyper Pigments, Tim Holtz Deckle Trimmer

I don't often watercolor, but when I do...

I reach for Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigments.

I used a gloved finger to dab some Neon blue, green and yellow Aqua Pigments on watercolor paper.

I touched up here and there with Brass & Silver Hyper Pigments.

Neutral Hope Card


Life's been rough for many and I have a friend I wanted to encourage.

Hero Arts Hope die, Pink & Main Plaid 1 background stamp, Tim Holtz Deckled Trimmer

I took my cue from this Fusion photo.

I love the neutral tan and browns sitting next to black and white prints.

This photo is SPOT ON with what I'm seeing in trendy decor.

I'm hoping this encourage my dear friend.

If she wants, it's neutral enough to hang around any room of her home.

The layers of die cuts and deckle trimmed panel are a minimal bit of texture and interest.
