Watercolor fun with Mixed Media Marks

I am sharing fun watercolor backgrounds with you today as I shared 2 weeks back on the Rubber Dance blog!




**** 

This is where it all started.. watercolor play and trying to loosen up, on a big sheet of watercolor;  in the meantime getting the practice of brushstrokes and control of water in the process.
Not that I am new to watercolor, but practice makes perfect, doesn't it?

I did a watercolor workshop on Skillshare from Jo-Marie Barlow to create the backgrounds for the 10x10 cm cards and ATC format cards.

(As for Skillshare: 2 months for free and after that you might want to subscribe!) 

ENJOY. 



 Why not play, and then cut it up?! 
 

 I gave it my own twist ..
... adding Mixed Media Marks... 


... and of course a stamped focal point....
 Grungy Butterflies and
Flowers Gone Wild and Doodle flowers on the ATC's. 


... I made 2 ATC's and 4 cards from the masterboard!!  


See you next time!

I am entering this in the challenge on
