About a month ago I took a watercolor workshop by Ken Oliver at the local craft store, Craft Fusion. I came home armed with 6 basic color of Ken’s product, Color Burst, grabbed some stencils I had on hand and started playing. I don’t think I have the color coordination down yet, so I limit myself to two similar colors to start. Once those dry, I add an opposite. I like the contrast. I like the layers of vivid colors. But I have to be very very careful not to make mud.
And I got lost in the process. Spraying water, sprinkling color burst, using a heating tool to speed up the drying process, then going back with more colors. Layering stencils, some store bought, some home made. I made so many pages that at first I didn’t know what to do. So I used them to make journals. And I took a bunch to the Vision Gallery in downtown Chandler to sell.
