signature design no. 1

aka galaxy batch

inspired by batch no. 17 • april 2017

technique watercolor burst with gold splatter

the galaxy batch was created by accident, but what a beautiful accident it was. it is something i love about watercolor – the unpredictability of it.

that is why watercolor is one of my favorite methods for making cards. the whimsical and mischievous ways of the watercolor make it intriguing to use again and again. yes, it can be frustrating at times, but more often than not, the results when using watercolor are thrilling and impressive. with an open mind, even mistakes can be turned into beautiful masterpieces.

the unpredictable and uncontrollable nature of watercolor allow artists to go on an adventure each and every time we use this paint. watercolor, whether used traditionally or in new ways, is always exciting and one of the most expressive mediums an artist can use in their work.
