Default 10/21/20 - WCW021 - Painted Heart

Date: 10/21/20
Hostess: Angie (ohmypaper!)
Keyword: WCW021
Challenge: Watercolor Heart


Hello and welcome to Watercolor Wednesday!  This week I have chosen a fun and easy watercolor tutorial.  We are simply painting a heart!  For my heart I die cut the heart shape but feel free to freehand!  I also changed my color palette to Fall colors because I can't seem to get enough of warm colors right now!

You can paint in your journal or make your art into a card.  Just have fun and I can't wait to see what you create!.  I might be away from internet for a few days and even without data so as soon as I can, I will post my card and comment on your beautiful art!  I have attached my sample since I may not be able to post it in the gallery for a few days.  


Remember to use the keyword WCW021 when you are uploading. It's helpful if you come back and leave a link on this thread, especially in
case you made a typo and people may not find your card.

If you're not sure how to link your card on the thread here, here's how:

1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says
www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE

The techniques I think should be the simplest often turn out to be the hardest for me - could be I overthink them but I am loving all the challenges the WCW team throws at us and growing in this medium.

Wow, these hearts look beautiful. I am hoping to have time this week to jump in. Ironically, I am taking a WC class which is sucking up all of my time. With multiple paintings and technique pages due each week I'm not left with much time. Boo! But I'm gonna try this week.

I ended up making two cards -  the first larger heart which I didn't like at first  and the second a smaller heart.  Thank you for this great challenge Angie!

Thanks, Angie! Had a blast experimenting Artzadoni style. Perhaps you'll start singing "My Cheating Heart".  Any key will do.

I thought the video was very helpful for layering colors. Thanks for that:

I am back!  I was hoping NOT to miss Watercolor Wednesday but plans fell differently than I hoped.   I will say it's very odd to be almost completely unconnected to the world!  We hiked up a ridge and on the top of the ridge I sent out a quick message and received a phone call and a half dozen messages!    

So here is my Painted Heart and now I am off to see what everyone created this week!

Angie, this was such a great challenge.  I've had my heart made since the Oct 21.  I was considering which sentiment to use with it.  I'm so pleased with how this turned out.  Really enjoyed the challenge.  I do find if you are going to use a pencil on watercolor paper you really must use the lightest of touches which i thought i did but i can see i will need to be even lighter handed.     50 years
