Inspired by All The Little Things



Guest Designer BadgeToday, I am so very thrilled to be the Creative Guest Designer for “Inspired by All The Little Things.” When Lesley messaged me a few weeks ago and asked if I would would be interested….of course it was a resounding YES!  Who wouldn’t…right?  I was down right honored and super excited! The picture below is the source of my inspiration!  When I first saw the photo I was super excited because just recently I have been dabbling with watercolors, and I am enjoying it so much and can always use some more practice.  Lesley, also probably doesn’t realize, but she is the one that inspired me to give watercolors another go, as she has been doing a lot of watercolors herself lately.  I will say that my first attempt was a complete bust!  I tried to mimic the photo perfectly by making the free form watercolors in the background and then stamping the flower image over top of the colors. It was a pathetic attempt. LOL  I then decided to get out my white embossing powder so I could have a bit more control of where the colors decided to flow.  Finally success! The strips of watercolored paper that I put on the top and bottom wasn’t to cover up a mistake which is usually the case, it was to add a little bit of interest. Now, please come on over to Inspired by All The Little Things and join us…I would love it if you did!  You may even learn something new about me while your there! 😉   Take care,  Nanc’
