Mixed watercolour

Hello... How are you all?

It's been very hot here, not easy to sleep at night and lately I've been feeling very jittery inside - Do you know what I mean? It's like I'm on a fast train and I want to get off. Luckily we have a holiday booked in a few weeks time and I'm really looking forward to it... Being by the sea always gives me a sense of inner calm

I haven't done much in the way of card making - It seems there is always something else I have to do, but when I do have a moment I get out my paints and play with colours. Today I finally made a card with some of the painted pieces


The leaves and the heart were die cut from a separate piece and the word was inlaid in white card


There are some lovely shimmery golds in there but it's hard to capture


I hope you're enjoying your day

Till soon

I just shake my head at the genius of your art. So, so beautiful! You know I'm loving your watercolor background, especially with the shimmery gold and white splashed through it. Gorgeous how you lifted the leaves and inlaid the sentiment. I get that jittery feeling, too, and couldn't fall asleep last night. Almost always happens during full moon phase, maybe because of the light, or could actually be some kind of pull... whatever. I hope you'll have beautiful weather for your vacation and will be able to fully relax.

This is fabulous, Ros! The panel is stunning anyway, but then to interchange the leaves and heart is a genius idea. Love the swishes of gold.
