We are so happy to welcome Roxanne O’Brien to our Lawn Fawnatics Design Team! She is an original team member but she needed to delay her debut with us. Here’s a little about Roxanne:
I live in Lake in the Hills, IL with my husband of 15 years, 2 sons (12, 7) and our pup Finn and 3 cats. I’m a graphic designer turned family photographer. I just switched creative gears! I’m also a den leader for my youngest for Cub Scouts which I truly enjoy. I love coffee, Halloween, fall weather, Harry Potter, Star Wars, and my favorite is Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. I’m a geek at heart. I love paper crafting especially with various forms of watercolor, and when I do scrapbook, my most favorite are mini albums. You can find my creative paper-crafting on my blog Organized Chaos and I’m also on Instagram @newleaftog. I’m very excited to be joining all these amazingly talented ladies!
Roxanne created a super cute Let’s BBQ card with a fun watercolor backdrop that would be perfect for July 4th and summer BBQs!
Thank you so much, Roxanne! Your card is adorable and so fun!
Our current Watercolor Challenge #7 will be open until July 2 at 11:59PM PDT. We hope you will join us and share your crafty projects featuring watercolor!
Hello, everyone, Christy here. For today’s card I wanted to use Upon A Star, and I thought it might be pretty to use some shimmery watercolors. The ones I own are the Twinkling H2Os, but there are lots of brands of shimmer paints on the market right now, so you could easily find something similar if you don’t already have it in your stash.
I painted my background with a wash of color using green, turquoise, blue, and purple shades, then painted the two foxes with a combination of a rusty red and golden orange. Once those were dry, I white heat embossed a selection of stars, as well as part of my sentiment on the background panel, then finished the sentiment on a scrap of black cardstock.
