Watercolour Wonderful!

Welcome to our special worldwide Blog Hop!  We will be featuring watercolours.  If you have come here from Jean's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

This month we have 30 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using watercolours and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I love the new Regatta line, and watercolours are a perfect way to create a beachy themed background. I cut a strip of watercolour paper and painted over it with blue, brown and yellow strips until I had a beachy background I was happy with. I then splattered some more blue over the background by loading my paintbrish with blue paint and flicking it across the paper. Here is the background on my finished card, embellished and matted.

Here you can see a close up of the splatter- I love to do this to my watercolour backgrounds for extra depth and interest.

Now "Hop" on over to Paige's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!
