Hop with Tombow and Michelle Woerner

Happy Veteran's Day! 

I want to start off by saying THANK YOU to all of our veterans.  You are appreciated more than you can ever know.  

Today the Tombow Team is hopping with the fantabulous Michelle Woerner.  Michelle is an amazing designer and I am thrilled to be hopping with her today.

You should have arrived here from Debbie's amazing blog, but if you didn't be sure to pop back to the Tombow Blog and start from the beginning.



I recently had the pleasure of teaching a group of ladies how I watercolor using Tombow Dual Brush Pens and this is one of the projects we made.  I created the wreath by cutting a ring using two nesting circle dies.  I cut several 1" x 3" pieces of cardstock from the Bo Bunny Autumn Song collection and then snipping the ends into a banner flag and then folding them in half but a little off kilter.  I placed a nice bead of Tombow Mono Multi onto the front side of the paper ring and then started placing the strips around the wreath, overlapping each one just a bit.  When I was finished wrapping the strips around, I flipped over the wreath and adhered the strips down with some more Tombow Mono Multi.  I used Tombow Power Bond to hold each of the layers together as the watercolor paper is pretty heavy and I wanted to make sure this turkey didn't budge :)



Here is a close up of the turkey....he is so pretty with his glitter!

I embossed the Inky Antics Tom Turkey image with black embossing powder onto some Arches 140# Cold Press Watercolor paper.  I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens in the following colors:
For this technique, I do NOT pre wet my paper.  I draw a thin line around the area that I want to add color to and then use a small #2 paintbrush to pull the color out and fill in the area.  I suggest letting each part of the image dry completely before moving on to the next to prevent the colors from running together.  If after an area dries, you can go back and repeat the process to add more color if necessary.

I have kept you long enough, be sure to stop by each of these blogs:
