PINTERST Inspired Challenge #2

Good day to ya!!
To say I labored over the  PINTERST Inspired  Challenge would be an understatement!
Geometric is not my thing...graphic is not my gig either!
So here is my  Organic interpretation of the watercolored Triangles in the inspiration photo:)

I have MANY watercolored practice pieces about my desk from Exploring Mediums Watercolor OLCC.   Creating SOFT Smooshed BGs has been a challenge and leaving plenty of white space is something I need to work more on.

  • The PTI  Branching Out Die captured some of the lovely Hues from a BG that I thought had gone all wrong.  
  • I tipped the leaf edges in Brushed Pewter Distress Stain for the shimmer.
  • Added the HELLO SCRIPT die from Memory Box and PPP sparkle Clear sequins.
  • Adhered them all together on  SSS woodgrain paper 

I'm actually Tickled with how it turned out:)

Thanks for stopping by!
