Hobby House and Bev Water colour class

Hi all
had a wonderful few hours at the Hobby House today. Met some lovely new aquaintances and made a uniquely different card from the one I think I was suppose to be following. Learnt from Bev how to use Tim Holtz ink to watercolour with a waterbrush. I have to say when I first was asked to bring one of these I did not quite know what it was. Having learnt from Bev that if you are going to use one of these lovely little numbers then make sure you are using the one with the valve in it as the others just don't make the grade (will throw away the others I bought - later) I have to say that I thought I was doing this shading thing probably all wrong. However, am pleased to say that think I was heading in the right direction.

Having learnt how to fill in stamped images with watercolour pencils and a normal brush (had difficulty with the brush bit) moved on to use a blender with the watercolour pencils and got on great. Moved on to trying to paint with Tim Holtz inks and did not get very far. Recently as you all know moved to copics and love them to bits, providing you use the correct ink to stamp (thanks Polly "~ARTfulwings~" for the info) and either a good quality marker pad or watercolour pad and even manga paper - however manga paper being like drawing on silk it is a little thin. Really enjoyed todays session on learning how to use Tim Holtz ink correctly.

Think that it depends on what you are doing and what you want to what media you would use and as always think most people would go with what they are familiar with.

I quite like them all (after practice)

Well folkes the men are home from fishing, managing not to obtain a toooooo red a tan and caught a good lot of little fishies, so off to catch up with them. Chat soon. xx
