Calm #4 Mixed Media Tags - Watercolor

 I have recently discovered that I like playing with watercolors.  It is fun and challenging.  I have so much to learn and am actually taking a couple of classes in using them.  This month's tag swap at Art and Sassy uses watercolors, so I was excited to get started.  Of course, lots of 3 Girl JAM goodies were the perfect compliment for all the watercolors.


Summer sprinkles and gorgeous 3GJ lace were perfect for this first tag.  Other supplies will be listed below.


This tag was also made with gorgeous 3 Girl JAM lace, but the bold, bright colors called for bold ribbon colors, so I used Cherry Lipstick and Sunflower.


This final tag was made with more lace coupled with the Spooky bundle.  The muted colors remind me of a flower peering through a storm.

Other supplies:
Strathmore watercolor paper
Fancy Pants "Lavender Leaves" paper
Tim Holtz Cargo Stencil
Studio Calico Huey's Mask
Art Philosophy Tag #3 cut at 6.25"
Artist's Loft Modeling Paste
