Hey there sweet friends! I have another video tutorial to share with you on this gorgeous Monday morning!
This time I’m using the Rose Wonder stamp set, and I’ve coloured it with my current favourite technique, which is watercoloring with dye ink refills.
I don’t actually have any formal training with watercolors, nor would I say I’m particularly great at it. I just happen to absolutely LOVE the effect. Besides, I figure that the more I practice, the better I’ll become at it. And as I’m learning, I’m sharing everything I’m doing and learning with you.
Now today’s video is a “sort of” process video. In other words, a good part of the video is in real time, but there were certain things I cut out and certain things I sped up.
For example, all the rose petals and each leaf segment was watercolored in the same way, so after showing you how I watercolored a few of the petals, and a few segments of the leaves I skipped past the rest. Then when it came to the background, I demonstrated part of the background and then sped up the rest. Even so, the video is still almost 30 minutes long.
Without the cuts and fast forwarding, it would have been well over an hour to watch the whole thing in real time.
So, I’m hoping there’s enough there that you can really see and understand what I did, but it’s no so long that I ended up boring you to death.
You know, I’m the kind of person that loves to see every single little detail when I’m learning something, and I have to remind myself that not everyone is like that. So it’s a matter of finding a balance when teaching.
Thoughts and Prayers Video Tutorial
For some reason, I’ve been noticing that when one of my posts that has a video tutorial first loads, the YouTube video player doesn’t always load. So, if you don’t see the video, please refresh the page.
