Hi there! Today, Altenew and the fabulous Kathy Racoosin are teaming up to bring you the Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Amber Rain Davis and your next stop is Erum Tasneem. If follow Kathy’s Instagram feed, you’ll know that we are in the midst of the 18th (!!!) The Daily Marker coloring challenge! Kathy’s fantastic challenges encourage you to relax a few minutes each day with the coloring medium of your choice. Today’s hop encourages just that: a little therapy with your coloring implements and some Altenew stamps.
With the big kids learning from home and the little ones being… babies, ha… I find myself yearning for some quiet time at my desk while also having the possibility of that time at my desk curtailed most days by how well school goes and how long naptimes last, how much laundry there is to fold and how many dishes there are in the sink. Some days I can only manage to color a bloom or two, like I’ve done with the project in these photos. I stamped the beautiful swag from Courageous You onto some Altenew watercolor paper using Obsidian ink, then used the new Woodless Watercolor Pencils and a damp paintbrush to quickly add color to the image.
My watercoloring philosophy is all about layering to get lots of depth of color. I began with a base layer of Rubellite Woodless Watercolor Pencil, then added some Ultramarine to create even more depth, mixing to create a pretty shade of violet.
