today at the paper plunge, we are celebrating spring with easter-themed cards and paper crafts! i have been dying to try my hand at watercoloring...it's all over the place. i think i need a bit more practice, however, not bad for my first time!
i was a bit heavy-handed with the background colors, but as i sit here and look at it, i am somehow reminded of when we used to go to sunrise service at a local park for easter. there was such a holiness about the morning...and the colors in the sky, as well as the reflection in the water, just all seemed to be muted and beautiful. the halo effect of the background just seems to say, "He is risen! He has risen indeed!"
stamps: blessed easter, gorgeous grunge
paper: watercolor paper, whisper white
ink: stazon black, crushed curry, pumpkin pie, old olive, real red
extras: aqua painters, watercolor brush
i have a confession to make...i have another obsession. i know, i know. i feel like i am cheating on my stamps and inks...but i can't help myself. i have fallen in love with zentangle. i can sit and tangle for hours. i am self-taught as of right now, however, i look forward to the day i will be taught and certified by its creators, maria and richard. here is a little zentangle-inspired art on some pens my husband 'turned' for me. it's a beautiful thing that we can come together with our art and create something so beautiful!
i wish you a happy easter or happy passover. remember...this is the season where everything is new again!
thank you for stopping by-
i appreciate you.
until the next time-
peace be with you.
