An Attempt at Water Coloring!

Well I thought it was about time I gave this water coloring thing a go. I was a bit nervous, wasn't sure how I felt about the lack of control I would have over things! But you know, I think it turned out okay. So I will be entering this into the Papertrey Ink {Make it Monday} challenge.



I did leave a bit more definition along my edges than Heather did in her sample. That control I was talking about ~ HA! But it's soft, simple and I'm happy with it. After everything was dry I used a cute notebook paper embossing folder from DeNami Design. The idea behind it was that is might be something created in an art journal. And since I embossed it, I'll enter this in the SSS {Emboss It} challenge!

I'm so happy you spent a bit of time with me today. I'll be back a little later with my give-a-way winner. Enjoy your Sunday friends ~Lisa
