Tomorrow's Forecast

I didn't end up having quite as much creative time as I would've liked yesterday. I spent more time out of the house and then doing food preparation than I thought I would. I did manage to squeeze this one in. It's funny, I absolutely hated watercolouring in high school art, but when you already have your main image there, and it's not going to run, there's something a LOT more satisfying about doing it. Part of the reason I got the sentiment set Brighter Tomorrow, was for the this sentiment "Tomorrow's forecast: Brighter than today!". I thought it just HAD to go with this cute image from And Everything Nice. I went with the primary colours on this one, that's what the image screamed to me. Also used Weathered and Linen on the background to give it a near fabric-like texture. I sponged around the edges of the red with cranberry ink to further that texture.

Lastly, remember to scroll down to the post

below to enter the Stamped Wallet Accordian calendar giveaways, that goes until Monday evening. There have been some questions about dimensions and how-to's regarding the calendars. I will share that when I announce the winners on Monday (that way, if you didn't win, you can make one yourself!!)
