I was very interested to try out Dina's Sanded Pencil Background, which was in the Inkling this week.
So, I combined it with Ky's Faux Tiles MIX69 challenge, using her tape grid in place of the stencil Dina used.
Watercolour paper, gridded with quilters tape, then misted and then I sanded watercolour pencil over it.
When it was dry I took the tape off. Stamped the sentiment, added the grass, and drew a rough edge in with Black Enamel Accents. I added a K&Co Dragonfly when the colours seemed a good match. Harrison Hedgehog is stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with Winsor & Newton watercolour (red heart is Sakura glaze pen, acting as a resist). I embossed him with Swoss Dots and swiped over the embossing with a darker brown. Little Liquid Pearl flowers were added to the grass, and then I decided I was done :D.
Fun tutorial, Dina - thanks so much!!
I chose this verse because for me it speaks a lot to trying new things out. Expect the best and not the worst.
