My Six Billion Dollar Idea



Welcome to the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge blog hop!

Super excited to be a part of this incredible lineup of amazing designers for Kathy's awesome challenge.

I just started doing this challenge last year, and I love how amazing just spending five minutes a day coloring something makes you so happy! So a big thanks to my friend Kathy for spreading coloring joy throughout the world with this fun challenge. Be sure and use the hashtag #thedailymarker30day when you play along Instagram - Kathy comments on all of them - she's amazing. Just color something - it doesn't have to be finished, and the medium doesn't matter - I love that about this challenge - makes me feel more creative the fewer rules I have.

Before I show you my samples, I wanted to share this fabulous idea with you, that could save crafters billions of dollars.

I was briefly employed in the stock trading software industry. (Feel free to picture me holding my nose - I'm not a fan of trading, but that's a story for another day. Let's just say I know a lot more about it than I care to know, and have changed my investments accordingly.)

Anyway, I was preparing for my mini-retreat in Salt Lake the other day, and was sad to see that so many of my Canadian friends are unable to come because of the wretched state of the Canadian dollar right now.

But in the midst of my sadness, I thought AHA!! This is a FABULOUS opportunity to launch my new craft-supply based travel agency.

What this agency will do is study currencies around the world, and organize shopping junkets to far-off lands where the travelers' dollars are strong in comparison to the destinations. We will shoot off, BUY ALL THE THINGS, and come home.

I think it's brilliant. Canada - prepare for planeloads full of crazed creatives carrying huge, empty bags to arrive and wipe out your art and craft stores! I'm such a genius!!


Okay - back to coloring.

I am taking the UBER incredible Online Card Classes Watercolor for Cardmakers - Intermediate Techniques class right now, and I have never, ever, taken a better class - it's incredible. Dawn and the other instructors have packed SO much information into their videos - I've watched many of them several times to really let it all soak in.

One of my favorite lessons was a technique for dealing with the edges of shapes. I loved this so much I did it a few times, experimenting with paper and two different brands of watercolor - the first is QOR, and the second is Winsor & Newton in Alizarin Crimson, Aureolin, and French Ultramarine. (Both brands are tube watercolors). I didn't see an appreciable difference between the two.

There is SO much information in this class about paper, it's mind boggling. I decided to do my exercises on Fabriano Acquarello 100% cotton cold press 140 pound paper, and man is this a dreamy watercolor paper. 

I stamped leaves from Stampin' Up's Vintage Leaves in Memento Pear Tart Ink, and then went to town with the watercolor. After I dried it, I lightly spritzed the back of the paper and flattened it with the surprisingly useful bacon press I never use for bacon. Then I stamped the sentiment from Concord & 9th's By Your Side in Versafine several times using my Mini MISTI so that it was nice and black on the textured paper, and attached that to a white card base.

I liked the intensity of these colors.
Understand Blue - 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Watercolor I I did a softer version with the Winsor Newton, with more pinks just to push myself out of my color comfort zone. The greeting is from the same Concord & 9th set - By Your Side
Understand Blue - 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Watercolor II
Pin It

And SURPRISE - when I went to photograph this second card, I made the oh-so-common discovery that I glued it on my card base upside down. Sigh. I will take it apart and fix it. 

Don't worry - I'm a better crafty travel agent than I am a cardmaker :).

If you're interested in this watercolor class, there will be a coupon code at the end of the hop - so be sure and stop by each blog to get that as well as an amazing giveaway from Kathy.


Thanks for stopping by - if you are new to Kathy's challenge, here is a little more info.

THE GOAL IS:  To color something daily even if it's a few minutes but, certainly not required
 It’s  been proven that coloring can lower your blood pressure so it’s worth carving out a little time for yourself each day. You will find that Kathy encourages you along the way to stretch your creativity a little bit more and to feel successful with your coloring.

CAN YOU PARTICIPATE in the 30 DAY CHALLENGE?  Yes! 
That would be awesome if you want to participate & feel free to jump in at any time during February! Everyone is welcome! If you miss a few days don’t feel like you have to catch up. The challenge is meant to be fun and with no stress. 
WHAT'S NEW THIS TIME?   
Kathy will have a weekly feature that she will be sharing on her blog that showcases some of your work every Sunday.

Hope you can find some time to play along - it's really fun, and a hashtag search for this challenge on Instagram will fill your phone with absolutely beautiful things. 

Loveyameanitbye.

  22. This is so utterly beautiful, I have not taken the classes you are on yet because, I figured I may as well start at the beginning and I am pretty impressed with what I have seen of those so far. so this is fun to see to look forward to learning. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sign me up for the inaugural trip of your new travel agency! I have a ton of friends who'd sign up too! LOL!
    I'm taking that watercolor class, too...but I am way behind. I have to watch each video about 100 times before I practice. But it sure is fun and I'm having a great time...and have learned so much (even though I'm only to Lesson 2! LOL!)
    I love your watercolors...so pretty and so soft. I will look forward to that lesson!

  28. Good luck finding many craft stores left up here in Canada. =(. They all seem to be closing as more people shop online. I really prefer to see true colours and actual sizes myself but I have had to shop online also as in our huge city there is one scrapbook store. Love your watercolour cards! The technique looks so interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Just love everything about those two cards. Beautiful job.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Beautiful, both of them, Lydia! I am taking the class also, but this was the most complicated for me...I have not yet attempted, but watching the video over and over :)))
    I like you idea about the retreat junkets in Canada, heck, maybe we could all pitch in and buy a retreat house!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like these cards, even upside down.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, Lydia!!! Both of these cards are fabulous! I really love the second one especially. Wow, its so soft and translucent. watercoloring really gives that ethereal look like nothing else i have found. its so heavenly. the pear tart memento ink was the perfect stamping ink. i have been thinking about what color to use. those leaves are gorgeous. wow, i am in love with both of these. thank you so much for sharing.

  33. These are beautiful! Can't wait to have time to start this class!

  34. Glad to hear that I'm not the only one who attaches the main piece
    to the background upside-down. Very frustrating - especially when the glue is REALLY STRONG that day.
    Love the watercolor look. I've not tried anything like that yet.
    thanks for sharing some beautiful cards.

    Thanks for inspiring!

  38. Omg!!! Love that water coloring. I may have to sign up for that class!!!! Your cards are BEAUTIFUL!

  39. The watercolor class for cards is fantastic. Best watercolor class in a long time. Put me down for Canada but I warn you, those airlines really over charge on weight. I had to leave my colored penciles home or pay $50.00 for 1 pound over. I saw nary a speck of sympathy but did have a great conversation concerning Gesso. The weight Nazis had heard of Gesso but had never seen it. She opened the jar and got gesso on her shirt and hand and then ask how to get it off. Sorry, I just couldn't help myself and I told her it was pretty close to permanent. The look on her face kept me laughing for days.

  40. Love the card it's great I can't wait to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow I love your cards!! I'm on the Exploring Mediums class but can't wait to get to the Intermediate one to try out this technique!!! I need more than 24 hours in a day!!!! 😬 and definitely going to join in with this challenge! Love colouring - anything and everything!!

  45. Lydia, you are a scream! I love your posts more and more with every one I read! Honestly, a bacon press? I never even heard of it before your blog! LOL I glue stuff wrong all the time. Glad to know it's not just me. This coloring is stunning. I am signing up for that class. Why not? $20 you can't beat and everyone is benefiting. . . so I guess I will, too, even though I am a beginner. THANKS!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Just beautiful! I love the card classed too and I'm going to sign up for the first watercolor class as soon as I finish the hop.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Beautiful watercolouring, Lydia! I agree - the watercolouring class with Dawn has been amazing. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has mounted their card incorrectly - lol. This is a gorgeous card!

    ReplyDelete
  48. The colors you chose for your card are beautiful. I guess the class tells how to stamp and paint the images. I want to learn.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Both of these cards are so impressive that if I found it in my mailbox, I wouldn't care if it was upside down! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Stop it Lydia. 1. You are taking all my ideas and 2. You made me pee a little when I read the part about the bacon press. Note to self: wear depends before heading to Lydia's blog. PS Your watercoloring is fabulous and now I want to take the class. Enabler. Pusherwoman. Stock Trader.

  67. Wow Lydia, these cards are "over the top" gorgeous! Yes, it is a sad time for us Canadians and on top of our poor dollar, groceries, utilities and taxes keep going up and I am having a difficult time trying to keep up, which of course leaves no $$$ for new craft supplies. My American friends, next time you shop for an item on Amazon.com, check out the price for the exact same item on Amazon.ca....it will blow you away how much we have to pay. Sorry to get off topic...obviously a little stressed which is why the "30 Day Coloring Challenge" is even more important to me...at least I still get to have some fun!

  92. Your craft supply-based travel agency isn't so far fetched. On a cruise to New England and Canada I searched for craft and art stores in every port. Think about it. With pre-planning we could really scope out the stores, and even arrange some meet-ups with our Canadian friends. Sign me up please.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Great idea for a craft supply travel agency. Your stamping and coloring is amazing. And the sentiment is fabulous. Lovely work.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Wow!! These are amazing. I'm taking that class too but I'm so very slow in getting it done. Have some catch up to do! Now I'm excited to learn this technique and try it out!! Great job. (I've put so many card fronts on upside down, but now I'm telling people they are worth a lot more money that way ;)

  104. Hi Lydia ~ Your cards are absolutely stunning!! I love coloring leaves and these cards would make one realize that leaves don't have to be just for fall. Totally gorgeous (& one of my favorite stamp images to color). I can't tell you how many times I've actually put my card front on upside down! As a matter of fact, not too long ago, I had to take a birthday card apart and then when I put it back together I had done it AGAIN!!!! Felt SO dumb!! I left it so it wouldn't tear and am saving it to send my brother, who is also left handed. We always whine because we live in a right handed world, so I'm leaving the card as a left-handed-opening!! He'll get a kick out of it....lol. Thanks for sharing these stunners.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Oh my gosh! These 2 cards are so beautiful! In the first one you used a lot of my favorite color, yellow and you used it some in the second one too. Do you know what this reminds me of, kind of? When I was coloring Easter eggs one year we didn't buy a kit we used our food coloring bottles and water. I accidentally got a paper towel in the die and what the die did to the paper towel kind of looks like what your water color looks like. It's so soft and pretty and colorful. I just colored some leaves with colored pencils and the shading I managed to get makes them look so pretty but they don't really look like leaves you would see on a tree. That's what yours look like.
    I did a card the wrong way too but when I looked at it, I liked the way it looked so much I left it that way! You would have had to see the card to know what I mean. I guess we all do it at some time or other.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Beautiful cards! I'm taking the OCC class too and it is the best one yet!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Those leaves are beautiful - like a damp misty day in the autumn! The travel agency idea is great, but don't bother coming here even though you're pretty strong against the €, we don't have enough indigenous supplies. I'd say the Netherlands could be a good destination to add to your agency list, though!

    ReplyDelete
  117. First of all, your idea is good, but it doesn't help the Canadian cardmaker who goes to the craft store to buy something and it's out of stock. That would feel awful! But, an okay idea, I guess. Secondly, your cards are beautiful!! It's nice to hear that someone else makes that kind of mistake too!! But honestly, if the front is glued too tight, you could just cut the card in half at the fold line and glue the entire card front to another card base. Good luck with your six million dollar idea!!! Your cards are beautiful!!! I will have to try watercoloring again. It never looks nice and crisp, so I don't like/prefer it.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I just love all those soft colors and how they complement each other.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Oh, these pieces are so beautiful! love them both!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Gorgeous watercolouring on each of these cards. This class seems awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  121. beautiful watercoloring! Love the saying.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Your cards are absolutely stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Totally stunning, ohh to have the talent to just pick the right colours and produce such beauty.
