I love doing this, I love H2Os, but really get so much pleasure from 'painting' with my watercolour pencils. What do others like doing?

I like to do watercolour pictures too. Last year I did a class whilst I was on holiday and painted a picture of Central Park, I had it made into notelets and gave some to family at Christmas. It wasn't fantastic but everyone was pleased with their gift! If you fancy having a go, I would recommend an artist called Frank Clark. He's an Irish guy with a really bad taste in shirts!! He has brought out some step by step books and DVDs and they are really good. I did one of his when I was having a good day and it went really well, I had it framed and it hung in the hall until we decorated last year. I'll see if I can rake it out and put a piccie on the gallery. I love you

cat I'd love to see it too Dee, I have tried landscapes without much success, I seem to be better at close ups of flowers. My real downfall is that they always look overdone somehow rather than looking natural if that amkes any sense!

Hi

I've popped it on esnips. There's a bit of glare from the flash but you get the idea. I have a tendency to make things very pale and understated, like I'm scared of adding too much colour. I'm not generally very artistic in the true sense of the word, that's why I like Frank Clark, and his step-by-step instructions. Next time I come in I'll try and remember to bring one of his books in to show you.

I adore using my watercolour pencils with my rubber stamps.....I have to say they are my favourite medium but I like to use felt tips and a blender pen which gives the same effect but a bit brighter.

I love painting, be it on HUGE canvases or very small stamped images.
I use various mediums.
Acrylic paits (watered down for the watercolour effect).
Water colour pencils
Sakura pens
Normal childrens felt tip pens
Marvi la plum pens
Whispers pens
H20s
inks
ermmmmmmmm im sure there are more still but cant think off top of my head lol.

I would say the whispers pens are my fave tho, although it looks like they are to be discontinued, although I do like the marvi pens too. but not as good as whispers...

I soooooooooooooooooooo want some primcolour pencils tho. but they are far out of my price range for the moment.

I haven't really had much experience with stamping, I bought some years ago and did some very basic stamping and heat embossing, but not done any since

But I was tempted recently by some cute Hero Arts clear stamps "ClearDesign: Four Dolls Product No: CL29" (Japanese Dolls)

I bought a StazOn inkpad and wish to create the same colour effect that is seen on Hero Arts artwork for these stamps

I presume it is watercolour, but I'm not sure if it is created with Pencil, Stardust Pens, or something else??

Can anyone give me some advice on the best medium to use

Many thanks
Angie

cat Not sure what Hero Arts use but on the odd occasion I do some stamping I tend to use markers (I've got whispers markers but there are lots of others) like watercolours - you scribble on a bit of plastic and brush on with a wet brush or you can outline certain areas and then blend with the wet brush. This is just one idea, I'm sure the Stamping Queen - Fairytips - will have plenty more to share, also I'm sure she's got a stamping workshop coming up soon....

I've just popped over to HA site, they've used Prisma pencils - colouring pencils with a strong pigment, then you blend them. I use Sansador to blend with. Hope that helps a bit Very Happy

Thanks for the quick replies, I have had a little look online and it seems the prisma pencils are not easy to get hold of in the UK,

I'm thinking I may just 'borrow' my daughters watercolour pencils and do a bit of practising with those and see how that goes for now,

I also have some Sakura Stardust pens in my stash somewhere too, although I'm not sure if they will make my images too sparkly??

I think I need to do a little experimenting.....

Very Happy

Oh I have quite a passion for the sparkly stuff myself especially when making fairy cards, and I don't think a single Christmas card left me this year without at least some Stickle Glitter glue Very Happy

I was hoping to maybe restrain myself a little with the Japanese Dolls......

Yeah, I'll see how long that lasts Wink
