Hi all! I’ve been out for the past couple of months with sciatica. I couldn’t even tell you what I did to cause it. But all of a sudden, there it was. All I can say is it was very unpleasant but I’m finally getting better. Yay!!! This was my first day back in the studio to finish Island Girl which I started before all this happened.

I made this painting with liquid watercolor paints. I gave her hair and eyes a little shimmer with metallic mica paints that worked beautifully on top of the watercolors. The flowers were punched and distressed. I added stickles to the centers and carefully adhered to them painting. Last I added a little of the metallic mica to the background for a bit of bling.

Here’s my latest girl, Heart. I made her using the same methods as the others. The hearts and flowers were made with watercolor paper, paints and a little sea salt to give them that unique look. I sprayed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist for a little shimmer and once that was dry I punched and adhered them to my painting.

Her colors are bold and bright which is what I love about these paints. I painted her on a 9″ x 12″ 140lb block of watercolor paper. I’m finding that the blocks of paper don’t buckle like loose sheets do. They are more expensive but definitely worth it.

I’m having an absolute blast with these liquid watercolors. They are so bright and fun. This is Joelle, my latest creation. I’ve been enjoying the beach this summer and was inspired to give her an ocean theme.

This painting was made with watercolor paints. I drew the octopus freehand on watercolor paper that I created. I then carefully cut him out, distressed the edges and adhered him to the painting.

The seahorse and jelly fish were made with rubber stamps on watercolor paper that I painted, cut and adhered to the painting. For a little bling, I added Stardust Stickles to the seaweed in the background.
