Welcome to Snarktoberfest!
If you came from Mel’s Card Corner, you are in the right place.
Thank you so much for joining in on the snarky fun this week as we have a few laughs with Josefine and her snarky crew. I haven’t had a chance to make a lot of cards recently so this is such a joy and pleasure to do, plus, it’s snark and I do love me some snark!
One of the fun techniques I have been playing with lately is watercolor galaxies and I took an incredible Cosmic Watercolor class by Melanie April Art which inspired today’s Snarktoberfest card.
Due to the fact that I took this class from Miss Melanie, I am not going to say HOW I created this card, because you truly need to take her class so you can get the full epic wonderfulness of how this was accomplished. I will, however, say that the paints I used were truly magical and had so much to do with the vibrancy and explosion of color.
I have been having a ball playing with all sorts of watercolors with my galaxies and I can tell you that the paint DOES matter! Plain and simple, QoR Watercolors have been my absolute favorite and next favorite would be the Prima Confections.
If you decide to try out a galaxy of your own, experiment, have fun and see how the colors move around on the paper.
Don’t be afraid to manipulate the color and push it where you want it to go.
Water is your friend!
Flicking the Shimmering Lights from Prima onto your watercolor galaxy wet will give you a different look than if you do it when it is dry. My advice, do it both ways and see which was you like it best. It’s your galaxy and in your universe, anything is possible!
And if someone gives you crap…just tell them to, “Be like a star. Distant and dying.”
