Time for a refill.....


It was time to re-fill my collection of watercolor background paper. The colors I mixed looked so pretty last night, I made a quick collage. I love to watch paint dry. The swirls and striations the watercolors leave are so beautiful to me...

I also worked on a new blog banner. I took the picture of those antique (faux antique?) frames at the flea market a couple of months ago. I was going to post it only as a photograph, but then started to mess around in photoshop with it and voila! A new banner is born.

TGIF! Stay cool where ever you are..

The new banner is great! It was very creative combining flea market find with your collages (and digital knowledge). Love it! Also, the watercolors look so good that you may have inspired me to get mine out and play :-)

THE FRAMES IN YOUR NEW BANNER LOOK SO CLASSY AND BEAUTIFUL. YOU MUST HAVE SPENT A PRETTY PENNY ON ALL OF THEM. YOU ARE SO LUCKY TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SNAP THEM UP. THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR PURCHASES WITH ALL OF US.

Loving all the eyecandy here. the new banner is fabulous! The collage as well. What are you using all the watercolor papers for? I love the idea of doing lots of papers in advance. I did several the other day, playing with my fluid acrylics and a pen. I've been using them in ATCs. Thanks for visiting my blog. I thought I would see what you had going on as well.
