Altenew Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, and welcome to Altenew’s Metallic Watercolor Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing a brand new set of metallic watercolors. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Emily Midgett, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Take a look at my watercolor postcard:

 

I love creating loose watercolor images. It allows me to play with the paint without any worries of perfection. The new Metallic Watercolor set is amazing. The colors are amazing and pretty.

Postcards are fun to send to people that you have spoken to in a while or when you’re on vacation. I created this “just because” postcard because a friend of mine is not well and I want to send her a quick message.

How to create this watercolor wash:

First, I wet the back of the postcard.

Second added the teal color to the water. The color moved all on is own.

Then add a little bit of gold.

Let the watercolor wash dry.

Splatter gold over the watercolor wash. Let it dry.

Use the Just Because stamp set to add the sentiment on top of the wash.

On the back of the postcard, add a light watercolor wash using the same color.

Now its time to send this postcard out to my friend.

What do you think? I would love to hear from you.

Hello Winter

Winter? No way, I’m not ready for it. December 21 seems so far away, but in reality, it’s two months away. Time has been running so fast, that before we know it, Winter will be here.

I know you asking what’s so special about these planner pages? Oh, let’s take a closer look!

Hello Winner planner page

They are embossed!! I added white snowflakes to both pages for the added effect and texture.

The white on white is hard to see, but if you look close, you can see the many snowflakes. Just so you know, I’m begging Mother Nature for no snow this year. I hope my wish comes true.

Altenew | Refresh Your Watercolor Brush Markers Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s July 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand new Watercolor Brush Marker Refills. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Janette Kausen, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Take a look at my watercolor embroidery canvas:

I love it when experiments go the right way, LOL! When the Tropical Fiesta Watercolor Brush Marker Refills showed up at my door, I wasn’t sure what to do with them. I tossed many ideas around and thought they weren’t out of the box enough. That’s when a light bulb went off, and I thought would they look good on fabric.

So, I tried, and I was excited when it went right!

Here’s how I created this colorful watercolor embroidery canvas:

Place a piece of linen-cotton canvas fabric on a glass mat.

Use a glass mat just in case the water or the ink didn’t absorb in the fabric. It would be easy to clean up.

Once the water on the fabric, start adding ink to the material.

Add as much color or different color as you desire. I used four different colors: Frest Lemon, Sunkissed, Turquoise, and Crimson.

Let the color take their time and move before you pick up the fabric.

Once you have the desired look, pick up the piece of fabric carefully; remember the mat is glass, so the liquid is sitting right on top of that glass.

Clean off the residue and place the piece of fabric back on the glass mat. Hoop it so it can dry. I used a heat tool because I was impatient.

Once the fabric dries, cut away the excess material, and now you’re ready to add a sentiment.

Before that could happen, I realized that I loved the backside of the fabric because it was a bit more subdued. So I changed it.

Now its time to add the sentiment.

Die-cut the word blessed from the Mega Blessed Die Set and adhere it to the front of the fabric.

Beautiful, easy, and fun to create. It’s a fantastic wall hanging home decor piece.

Let’s take another look:
