I told a friend the other day during an Olympic texting fest, that watching the Olympics is like riding a rollercoaster through the Louvre.
There are such wonders to behold, but you spend half the time screaming, holding your breath, covering your face and generally being clenched. I think I might have some sort of brain hernia after watching Casey Eichfeld in the whitewater slalom semi-final. That is a mystifyingly improbable and nervewracking sport.
My poor cats have PTSD from the screaming, clapping and wild sympathetic ducking and leaning going on. I hope they forgive me.
So if you need something to help you unclench while you're ignoring the 87 daily hours of beach volleyball, how about a fun vintage watercolor technique?
Take deep, soothing breaths. Pick up a Winnie The Pooh Stamp.
So the technique is from Heather Telford's tutorial on Splitcoast - she's amazing. I had done a different watercolor technique with the pen at my retreat, and I just love the versatility of it. It's kind of magic.
For this card I added more color to maintain the classic Pooh look, but other than that, the technique is the same. And lookie - there's a video!
Speaking of videos, don't forget - Online Card Classes is having a sale this weekend! Go get yourself some crafty education! I am a huge fan of their classes - it's a bit of an obsession.
