Trying lots of  new stuff this week again while I wait for the acrylic paint.

This time I bought watercolor. Have not done that since I went to school as a child. So it is all new to me. A question to you that are used to the medium, is it possible to keep the paper from "bubbling"?

The Clay Forest, comes from cleaning up some remaning things from my mother. The clay was created by my mother and my daughter some 40 years ago. So, many memories there.
I photographed the pieces and manipulated them one by one in Photoshop. Then arranged the scene. The background is created by painting digitally with a tablet.

Linking up with the following memes. My thanks to the hosts:

  1. For paper, look on youtube, a lot of solutions there.

  2. how I luv those flowers in the first one. Happy PPF Monica

    much love...

  3. well, how fun are these projects:) Happy PPF!

  4. Yes, there is a way to stop the paper from buckling..firstly, the weight of the paper matters. The heavier it is, the less it will warp. Also, you need to stretch the paper before you paint on it.


    Hope this helps. :)

  5. I love the little scene you created with the clay figures your family made. I's got a dream like feel to it. Happy PPF and Blessings!

  6. What fun! Very colorful and interesting!

  7. That's a cheerful watercolour painting Monica. Lovely colours.
    It was very interesting reading of the process you used to create your digital art, very clever and well done 😊
