Hi everybody, in case you missed it, every Friday we host Live Around 5! on Facebook Live. Each week we have a live product demonstration where you will learn new techniques all the while having a great time! So if you haven’t joined us before, check us out next Friday or view past episodes by clicking HERE.
About a week ago, Suzie, our fabulous project demonstrator shared a really fun technique with us that we just had to try so we offered this challenge to everyone and got some takers! If you would like to participate in the challenge you can view the video to see the technique Suzie used by clicking HERE.
Below you will see our projects using Suzie’s technique and we hope that you will give it a try as well and then post your results in the challenge below! You could win a $25 gift certificate!!
This project was created by Phyllis using Topiary Time. She had wonderful success using yellows and oranges like Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise, Canyon Clay and Terracotta Tile
In her next project Phyllis used the cut out from the die she used above as a mat for her topiary and bird. As we always say, never let anything go to waste!! This time Phyllis went back in after her laying down the initial color on wet watercolor paper and added the orange “swipe” of color. She wanted a little bit more color to add interest.
Lastly, is my project. I planned on using the center more along the lines of Suzie’s project but once I cut out that frame using the Border Bling: Skinny Diagonals Frame Die I loved how the frame looked so I went with that. This is such a fun technique and I can’t wait to use my middle piece for something else!
One winner will be chosen at random to receive a $25 gift certificate.
To enter, participants are required to create a background using Suzie’s watercolor background technique with PTI/Ink to Paper supplies and share it via the link below. We can’t wait to see what you make!
