Just Add Water Thursday.

Helloooooo anyone there??!!

Ah lovely Google and the disappearing followers...especially when you don't have that many followers to start off with!! Ah well at this rate I'll be talking to change there then although I only start to worry when I answer myself though ;)

A couple of weeks ago I bought a little Prima water colour pad, nothing special about it at all really, in fact the paper is quite rough, it's about a size 8 tag for easy reference.

What it has done though is forced me to work on a smaller scale and I've worked just with water soluble media too. The likes of Distress markers and inks, Stabilo pencil, fountain pen etc. Just learning to stop being such a neat freak with my work, be more messy and free handed!

I'll be sharing over the next few weeks the quick little creations I've made, I will probably try and bind these all into a little book at some stage, well that's the plan anyway.

Distress Markers, Tim Holtz hashtag stamp.

Hope you like it

  1. Yes, some of us are still here! Isn't it disheartening though? Love your little watercolour sketch - very sweet.

  2. I'm still here. I will talk to you. This is a sweet little art piece. I love kitty. I have a gmail account, but I don't use it because I don't like it. I continue to use Yahoo and I don't care who doesn't like that.

  3. I'm still here too! I don't get much time to comment but always keep my beady eye on what you are up to! I don't have many followers and have even less now but I am used to talking to myself ... I find it is the only way to get an answer! Love your work as always - I'm trying my hand at mixed media and struggling with my need to be neat and tidy!

  4. It'll take more than google to get rid of me!!!! I've no idea why it's doing what it's doing? Lovely piece and can't wait to see huge rest.
