My 1st attempt at Kittie747's "watercolor landscape" technique. As you can see.......I am not an artist, but I sure had fun trying. My tree, grass and some flowers are hand drawn. I used an artist pen on the main tree. The leaves, hedge, grass and sky I dabbed with TP using different colors. Then I added some hand drawn grass and stamped with the tip of my Touch of Nature fern and solid Painted Poisie stamp. The little colored flowers are also from P. P. The wheel barrow image was colored with markers. I used reinkers and my aqua painter for all of the other coloring. My technique needs work, but Kittie gave me the boost I needed to even try. Thanks Kittie for a well thought out technique tutorial. Check it out on the resource page. Enjoy, Nancy

Nancy, This is darling. I love your big, old tree. It is great. I love what you used as leaves and fillers in your grassy area. I especially love your little flower wheel on the wheelbarrow. Great job. It wasn't hard at all was it??!! It just trying it to see.

I think you did a wonderful job! It was a great idea to use the Touch of Nature stamp for the leaves and the wheelbarrow for the scene. I love the flower on the wheel! I'll bet you had fun playing around with this!
