Art in the Park



I got to play in  my craft room today!
Todays challenge on Splitcoast Stampers was an inspiration Challenge
from the website " A View on Cities" this photo of  a Japanese Garden was what caught my eye:

I really had fun creating ....I sketched...and masked.. and watercolored ...and stamped...and flicked markers...and punched flowers...and generally got all artsy fartzy!

I did have a happy screw-up.... I had made the brown color along the water bank too dark, so I wanted to lighten it so I put water down with the water brush and the rubbed it wit the corner of a paper towel.  Well, gee...that pretty much shreaded the top layer of the paper...but I kinda liked the look.  Sure am glad I started out with nice thick watercolor paper!

Thanks for looking.

Till next time,

MARCH

wow, I can't believe it's March 5th already......
I feel I should explain why I haven't been posting ....
My husband has been in and out of the hospital.....
He's doing better each day and I'm remaining hopefull, but prayers are always welcome!

I find that cardmaking is my anchor....so here's what I've made lately...











Thanks for looking!
