So I got carried away...
Recently I was creating a custom bridal card and got carried away coloring my card with my watercolor pencils.
I was trying to create a halo around the bride and it ended up looking like she was contaminated with nuclear chemicals or something. Anyway, the whole thing made me take a closer look at the books I read to my children.
I read this one recently and realized that it has beautiful artwork and what you know? All the illustrations were made with watercolors and there is a WHITE halo around the characters from where the artist left the area without color. The whole concept is perfect but if you look too close it might look a little messy.
I am definitely learning some serious art as I scrap and card make. :) Every day is an opportunity to learn new things and grow.
So for now my brides will not have a blue halo around them, but who knows in the future!! :)
Also, if you are interested in scrapping but is really short on time please follow me. I will be doing a little tutorial on using digital to short cut your scrapping time. :) Here are some of my recent pages I made using these shortcuts.
Thanks for stopping by.
