Addicted to Stamps and More #107

Its Wednesday and that means it is time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. This week we have the Make your Mark challenge, meaning that you need to use some kind of marker to make your project. You can opt for pencils, markers, crayons, paints, whatever you feel like creating with this week. I opted to use my water colour pencils and decided I would have a go at painting a scene. Now this is my first attempt at doing anything like this, so it is not that good but I enjoyed doing it and hoped it would show you that we can all try something different now and then and we don't have to be an expert to enjoy it!



 I had a hunt on Utube for videos that might help me create a scene and found one on the Frugal Crafter. I like her videos as they are fun and she gives you lots of pointers. I didn't copy her scene as I actually didn't like all parts of it. I just took the bits I did and added my own twist to the painting. I decided to make it into a card and thought a black base was just the right look.

Our sponsors this week are Stamp Art Designs, check out their fab store here-some of these digis could be yours!

Now check out what our super DT have created to inspire you this week by popping over to our main blog at Addicted to Stamps and More

  10. You've clearly got talent, Sandie! Even if you were a trained water colorist I'd say this looks fantastic! I'm even more impressed as this is your first go at making a scene. The colors of the sky are beautifully mirrored in the sea. It looks so peaceful and calm.
