HELLO!!! Hello Friends!! Welcome to my new blog. Wow! I have missed posting and your visits to my little slice of blog land. Thanks for your emails they mean the world to me. I hope you will have time to poke around and find the new Daily Marker easier to navigate and more inspiring.
Matter of fact I have THREE PRIVATE videos just for YOU when you subscribe to my blog. (If you are a regular subscriber and you want to see the videos that’s a big YES YOU CAN!! Just shoot me an email or re-subscribe since this is a new blog it’s probably safer to do that. )
For my blog launch I planned a huge Giveaway but, I decided to have more regular giveaways to share the love rather than just one person win the whole caboodle. Also, I am finally getting comfortable with videos and can finally promise you more of them.
- on watercolor paper with watercolor pencils add some color by scribbling on the paper
- wet a brush, start from the lightest color and blend all of the colors only once. if the color is dark dab off the color on a paper towel so the colors don’t get to muddy
- dry with a heat gun
- TURN your paper and repeat step 1 & 2
- admire your handy work
- place a tissue on top of the paper to absorb some of the color and dry with a heat gun
- place your die cut and use some post it tape so the die won’t move
- stack and glue with glossy accents the large hello (one of my fav die cuts)
- layer your card and add some stitching with the white gel pen
