"LD Design" Watercolor & Quotes Page 2 (September 2006)

I went to another weekend class given by Lorraine Douglas. Marvelous. These ATCs are a direct result of something I learnt in that class. 

I used Arches Text Wove paper for the watercolor artwork. I smeared Rheotech gesso, Golden's Iridescent Stainless Steel, Gold fabric 3D paint over the paper. Let it dry used watercolors wet on wet in blue/pink or green/yellow/red. I then cut them up into little pieces. I used white cardstock for the main part of the ATC, and a micron fine tip pen to draw in the lines and write the quotes, then glued my little watercolor pieces and mounted it onto colored cardstock.
