July Blog Hop – Pets!

Welcome to the July Blog Hop.  A Blog Hop is a circle of crafty inspiration all on one theme.  If you came from Cindy’s Blog then you are on the right path.  Due to the school holidays we are a small circle but hopefully full of inspiration with theme “Pets”.

I was inspired at a recent Consultant Workshop to give watercolour another go, and for the only other girl in the family, Poppy, I had just the page.

I started with just one photo, my favourite of Poppy and wanted to use a purple/lilac colour as she is a lilac tortoiseshell Burmese.

Just released not too long ago are the Watercolour Picture My Life Cards Z3127 and I chose to use the gold ones.

I also used my new Watercolour Brushes which are so easy to use.

I have only used my watercolour paints a few times but not as much as I should.  Now I have discovered how much fun they are!

I just used 2 colours a beautiful blue and a purple, and just played …,

I was really happy with the effect and had so much fun.  I mounted the photo on Indian Cornflour Blue cardstock to make it pop. 

 I played around with the paints for a title 

but in the end I decided to use my Versamark ink pad and Gold Embossing Powder along with the Typeface Alphabet Set to complete the title.

I am really happy with my page that celebrates my Poppy.

I hope you are inspired to  celebrate your pets and give watercolours a go.

Happy Crafting
