Is it really April already!!? I’m Sandy Allnock, and I’m confused…it often still feels like winter, but I’m SO ready for spring! The crazy weather all over the US has been nutty — what’s it been like in your corner of the world?
But, this weather has inspired me to make a deliberate effort to reach out and invite spring birds into a card — with A Tweet Hello!
As for supplies this month, I’m using watercolor, but you may not know there are some “dot cards” out there that could help you try out watercolor without making a huge investment. They’re little blobs of paint — they come in sheets big and small — but the one I use in this video is the Sandy Allnock Palette! I was blessed that Daniel Smith company wanted to make one to share my favorite colors, the ones I recommend for crafters. I have a gajillion other colors, but try to use these so you don’t feel like you need to go out and get them all. Get a few. (Then let the addiction start. Ha!)
In the video, I forgot to mention I was painting on Arches Cold Press. Anyway…let’s get to the video, okay?
There are lots of stamps you could use to make a wreath from…what stirs your brain? They just need to be small enough to live in a little circle of greens!
If you try this technique, whether with A Tweet Hello or other stamps, be sure to tag me out there on social media (I’m usually @sandyallnock everywhere!) — I’d love to see what you make!
