Woodland Watercolor Scene

I'm very excited to share this because it represents a series of firsts for me. This was my first time trying to watercolor a scene (as opposed to backgrounds or stamped images), this was my first time using gouache (for the leaves), and this was also my first time watercoloring while following along with a YouTube tutorial (thank you to The Frugal Crafter)!

I found the whole process so fun and informative. As with any medium, the more you do the more comfortable you are with it so I definitely want to learn more!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs, Eileen

Because He Lives I Can Face Tomorrow

In the face of a sudden family loss, I struggled to make a Sympathy card. I just couldn't find any creative inspiration. This Washi tape from Altenew had just the watercolor look I wanted and I chose a sentiment from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps that spoke to my heart. My faith is my only comfort today. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. Hugs, Eileen

You Mean The World To Me

 I miss you all! I inked a stencil background to highlight the globe and emphasize the sentiment.
