Playing with Watercolours

I haven't done much scrapbooking at all lately. I seem to be addicted to colour and paints. I started a watercolour journal this weekend and am so inspired by two particular women and their blogs. I HATE to copy. I really do, but I'm not sure how you learn without copying until you learn your own style. I love Lori Vliegen's style from elvie studio blog. I love her creative lettering and so I played around with some of her designs and copied what she has done and put a little twist of my own on the odd one. I also love Jenny Frith and her colourful style. Her blog, Jenny's Sketchbook is here. Be sure to check both of these women out, they are amazing artists!

So here's my attempts at some of my first watercolours. I have to say, I am getting better at shading as I go. I'm addicted, absolutely LOVE it! Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to :)
