No-Line Watercoloring with Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils

IMG_9761

Aloha Guys!  This is Joyce from http://enjoyscrappin2.com and today I have a No-line watercolored card using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.  I personally love to watercolor and these watercolor pencils are by far my favorite.  The colors are very vivid,  intense and they blend out completely.  These pencils are Waterproof, Permanent and Archival, once it's dried.  Which makes layering very easy, without having the color underneath get effected.  I love them, they are very easy to work with.  I hope you enjoy this card and I'll see you next time.  Thanks again :)

New-Year-600

Several Gelatos® and some Texture Luxe™ were used to make this card full of raised goodness. And when you make a big booboo by tearing the corner, you then distress the card so it looks intentional. :)

Snowy Woods New Year's Card

And this simple technique for creating the look of birch trees in a snowy woods is the perfect project to create unique, homemade cards. Of course, if you miss the New Year mailing deadline, these note cards would also work for Winter stationery. Maybe even Holiday Thank You cards?

IMG_9560

Aloha Guys!  This is Joyce and today I have 3 easy card techniques for you, using Gelatos® Mixed Media Kit 50's Diner.  This is a 23 piece kit, which includes: 5 Gelatos® Colors in 50’s Diner hues, 10 Mixed Media Stencils, - Texture Luxe® Silver, 2 Misting Bottles, Palette Knife, Stipple Brush, Dot Dabber, Drip Dropper and Instruction Guide.  I decided to share card techniques today because 1. I'm a card maker and 2. to show the versatility of Gelatos®, not only for mixed media but card making as well.  Many card makers feel intimidated with Gelatos® or simply think it's a mixed media medium but I totally disagree.  They are the easiest medium to work with, so try them out.  You'll be amazed at what they can do.  I hope you enjoyed my card inspirations and I'll catch you guys next time :)  Thanks again!
