In the last posting we used an image from a small bollio stamp from JudiKins to stamp across 5 white Inchie Squares. If you recall, 'trees in reflection' was on one side of the stamp...and this is what was on the other side! Called Rough Lines 6909-I, it makes a perfect watercolor ocean.
And this is our work space!
We followed the same processes as explained before - testing the Twinkling H20 paint colors on Twinchie Squares before deciding...and then following all the same steps for painting. In addition to using direct color from the pots we also mixed a new color. See how the arrows point to a test color in the lower right corner? (click on the photo to see a larger view). We combined a little of these two colors to create a third color and used a Twinchie Square as a mixing surface (since it's a very porous surface you have to be quick before it absorbs!)
It's so easy to get the paint pots mixed up in the middle of a project - especially when they are all of a similar color family - so we found that creating a 'placemat' and labeling everything keeps things in their place. And, if you look carefully in the lower right corner you can even see the notes about the 'order' of the colors as they appear on the ribbons of water.
