Hello, my friends,
Today was a very busy day. I had yet another doctor's appointment for my ankle. It's kind of like I said last week....I feel ridiculous even reporting in about it anymore. I was feeling SO hopeful last week when I went in to have the wound vac changed because things seemed to be healing really well at that point. I'd already gone to see the plastic surgeon and gotten on his schedule for surgery for mid-August. The plan was that he would do a a skin graft and close up the wound once and for all. After the visit last week with my regular podiatry surgeon, it was looking like surgery may not be necessary.
Well, things have sort of come to a stand still and I had to have the wound vac put back on today. It will be there until next Tuesday's visit. I'm leaving for Convention on Wednesday morning so I'll be doing other bandaging and treatments while I'm gone. Things could still change again. I'm leaving it up to the Lord at this point. :-)
Ok....now for some FUN..... I've wanted to try working on a watercolor technique for some time and today was the day. I can't believe how simple it was to do. I used watercolor paper, my Stampin' Markers and an Aqua Painter. Let me just tell you that the Aqua Painter is one of my new best friends. It's one of those things that I'm sure will be just the tip of the iceberg because I'm already thinking of the next 10 projects I want to make using it.
Alright....Enough talk..... Here's the card I came up with....
I absolutely love this technique. It just adds so much dimension and it looks even prettier in person. The colors I used are Rich Razzleberry for the base Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Primrose Petals The images were stamped in Black Staz-On.
Here's what the Aqua Painter looks like....
You fill them with water and the flexible brush tip is perfect for precise coloring.
Water coloring is one of the most requested techniques from my customers so I think they're in luck. I'm in a water coloring frame of mind!

Alrighty....I'm off to work on swaps for Convention. I'm pretty sure I'll be working on them right up until I leave for the airport! LOL That's okay......it's SO worth it!
Wishing you a magical day,
