HLS September Watercolor Challenge: Tropical Theme

Robin S Sharma once wrote:  Getting lost along your path is part of finding the path you are meant to be on. When I finished this "Lost and Found" watercolor piece this summer, I knew it had something to do with finding my path in my art.

HLS ATC August Challenge...Time!

It's time for a new ATC Challenge at HLS!  The theme this month is "Time" and I have created another bundle of ATCs :)

I started these just as I usually do, with a big piece of bristol or mixed media paper.  Then I added some Dr PH Martins Hydrus watercolors and let them move around.  Next I did some stamping and then I cut them down to size.  I got 8 ATCs out of this sheet of paper and I kept the little extra pieces to add as embellishments to these cards. 

After I cut them to size, I distressed the edges with distress inks and heat embossed the text which comes from a stamp by Tim Holtz.  Then I layered on some embroidery thread, and the extra bits of paper which I also added three brads to.  I think the brads give a nice finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by to visit, I will have more projects for you again soon!
