Watercolor Winter Gold Embossed

Watercolour Crayons

Another forgotten technique that was demonstrated very well last Saturday at the Stampin' Up! Regional Heartfelt Event in Brisbane was using watercolour crayons. Kim Gavarra gave us lots of handy ways to use the crayons. I have not used them for years, so my first attempt this week was on a very small project. I… Continue reading Watercolour Crayons
