EAD Monday Blog Hop!

Hooray it's Monday, which means it's time for another EAD Monday Blog Hop!!!  If you just arrived here from Jenn's blog Double N Designs, you are in the right place.  If not, you can always hop back tot the EAD Designs blog to start at the beginning!  This is my last week as a guest designer with EAD Designs and I have had so much fun!  Thank you so much to everyone at EAD Designs and the wonderful design team for being so welcoming!  Special thanks to Joanna, for inviting me!  

 I tried something a little bit different for this week's project.  I used my watercolor pencils to actually color on the Believe in Make Believe Stickerz.  Here are a few things I learned:  I should probably practice more (a lot more) with my watercolor pencils.  You should only use a teensy tiny amount of water to make the pencils work on the stickerz, and I should really practice a whole lot more!  


The next stop on today's hop is the super creative Amy T. from Tsuruta Designs!

  • Card Bases: Standard A2

I haven't tried coloring in yet because I don't own the copics or promarkers. I need to try with my pencils.
