Hello Ai fans!
It's a Watercolor Weekend so let's talk Watercolor!
First of all, Bonnie finished up her Christmas Journal.
If you missed it, you can find all of the tutorials here on the blog. For a bit longer there will be a tab on the top of this page that says Bonnie's Journal. You can click that. After that is removed you can search the tag "Christmas Journal" and find all of the tutorials.
The next big news in Watercolor is that there is a Harvest Journal and a Halloween Journal coming!
There are new stamp and die sets as well as paper, available NOW!
You can view the new collection here.
Just as with the Christmas Journal sets, you can purchase them separately or as a bundle to save some money.
There will be live tutorials for the Harvest Journal every other Wednesday beginning October 12th.
There will also be a recorded tutorial for the bonus Halloween Journal. The Halloween Journal will mostly use images from the Harvest, a couple from the Christmas Journal release and will also feature a few NEW sets which will be available Oct. 12th.
You can do it fairly fast and use any containers, fillers and animal you have but if you want to make this one, start by stamping the fox from the 5016 Mini Critters set inked in Tombow 969. Cover him with a mask then stamp the pumpkin next to him from the 5426 Veggies set inked in the 969. Cover that with a mask so you can stamp the other pumpkin. Then stamp the basket from the 5059 Harvest Set in 969 and 565 behind the fox. Stamp the pot from the 4701 Clay Pot set inked in both 969 and 565. Pull the color out of the lines. Color the pumpkins with the 933, 993 and 947. The stems are 969 then use the fine point tip of the brown TwinTone to darken the stems. The fox is colored with 947, N25 and 969. Darken his eyes and nose with the brown TwinTone. The basket is colored with 312 and N25. Darken the nails with the fine tip of a gray pen. Stamp the flower from the 5264 Decorative Post Set inked in N52. Then use the large grass from the 4051 Foliage Set 1 inked in 312 inside the basket. Ink the vines from the 5474 Flower Set 5 in the 312 and stamp them on either side of the basket. Clean the stamp off then ink just the flowers in 993 and stamp them above the grass. Color the clay pot in N52 and the band in 312. Stamp the branch from that same set inked in 969. Stamp the flower in 947. Stamp the berries in 933 and their stems in 312. Color the sky with the N52. Stamp the small grass from the foliage Set 1 inked in 026 in front and pull the color out. Use the 5062 Rounded Corner Rectangles to cut it out along with background pieces.
Hey watercolor fans!!! I am so excited to share this “out of the box” painting with you. I challenged myself to any stamp set I decided to use into a Halloween/Fall themed project. It was so much fun! You gotta try it! I decided I was going to take the angels stamp set and turn them into Halloween Costumes. I shared some on Instagram. After finishing this one, I hope to put a cute background on all of them.
