That's been a really quick week again, where is the time flying to? Well it's Tuesday morning so that means it's another new challenge at Passion for Promarkers, this week the lovely Maria chose the theme "In the Garden" and you can use any colours of promarkers. Maria has also done a fabulous tutorial for the Weekend Workshop featuring a very clever way to use your blender pen, so if you pop over there for a nosey - remember to leave a comment there for a chance to win some fab digital images from Digistamp Boutique.
So this week, for a wee change, I decided to dig out my AquaPromarkers and have a go at colouring with them. I haven't really done any watercolouring since I did my Higher exam at school, which was more than 20 years ago (argh, how did that happen) so I'm a wee bit rusty. And of course you have to forget everything you know about using Promarkers, as the AquaPromarkers require a completely different technique. I also decided to go for bright cheery colours - I don't know about you, but "watercolour" always makes me think "wishy-washy", and I wanted to prove otherwise.
Of course, the good thing about AquaPromarkers is that you don't need so many colours, as you can dilute each of them to a shade that suits you.
Image: Bloom & Grow from Sugar Nellie, coloured with AquaPromarkers: for her skin I mixed some Sepia and Rose Carmine on my glass cutting board with the Aqua Blender, for her hair I used Naples Yellow and Gold Ochre, for her clothing I used Rose Carmine and Gold Ochre, The grass and leaves were Sap Green and Permanent Green and the watering can was Lamp Black.
Papers: the butterfly paper was a freebie from SC&P magazine, and the pink polka dot and pink stripe papers are Doodlebug, the yellow, pink and mint cardstock is all core'dinations.
