It's January! It's cold! Let's create a darling RubberMoon Art Stamp bookmark! Then, cuddle up with a good book!
This is Teresa Cox Kolar from Purple Sun Studio.
It's blog time!
I always enjoy putting together a tutorial
using RubberMoon Art Stamps.
Thank heavens for RubberMoon and their inspirational new website, blog hops, etc.,etc. Stop by their websites and pages often. They have something fun going on ALL the time! There's nothing like creative ingenuity to keep us from the winter doldrums!
The following tutorial highlights a few of my favorite stamps from RubberMoon. Also included is one of my tried and true watercolor painting techniques. This method will make your painting time stress free. Watercolors can be tricky and unforgiving. However, with the following information, you'll be set for stress free learning and fun!
Let's get started!
Super Heart/Checkerboard Bookmark
Time to start the fun!
You will need:
140lb. cold press watercolor paper.
Begin creating your bookmark by tearing a pre-measured piece of your watercolor paper. Tearing along a marked and folded line will give you a naturally deckled edge.
