Going to the beach before fall.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I have two cards to teach you. Two! The first card is just like going to the beach but without the sand in places you don’t want to think about and no frizzy hair.

The new pads are quiteContinue reading “How to watercolor with the new ink pads.”

When to blend and when not to.

It’s Technique Tuesday!  Today we are going to talk about when to blend and when not to and what tools to do so. When you are trying to color you want to think in opposites.
