Hello and welcome
Today I’m back for a project for HLS Watercolour Challenge for October 2019 with an optional twist of BOTANICAL ! However, anything watercolour is just fine.
I hope you can find time to join in the fun this month!
This month, I have chosen to go with a notebook rather than a card, just for a change.
It was a perfect gift for a friend.
To begin Penny Black – Summer Sunflowers was stamped on a piece of watercolour paper. This is a very old wood block stamp, one of my very first purchases maybe 15 or more years ago. I just like the various elements included in this simple scene. However, it hasn’t seen the light of day for a while! LOL!
The image was watercoloured using a variety of inks.
After trimming, the panel was added to a piece of light coloured kraft cardstock, before being adhered to the front of the kraft notebook with a neutral button and raffia tie.
I thought it all tied in together perfectly. The notebook pages are all made of kraft stock as well, giving it all a very natural earthy feel.
Please head over to our blog and check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team! I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month. Good luck!
