Altered Post Card Seashells

Next Saturday is our local Altered Book Club meeting.  One of my commitments is to do a postcard on the subject of Seashells.  This one took some thinking on my part. After stewing on the project for about 3 weeks I finally decided to do something totally different.  Now you know I love watercolor but when I do a watercolor project it is with stamps and markers.  When searching on the internet on seashells I ran across a children's book about collecting seashells and the artwork for the book blew me away.  So, here is my first watercolor where I DREW the image....not a stamp in sight.  Something weird happened while I was painting.  Do you see the image of a heart between the girls hand and her face?  Well I didn't do that.  It appeared on it's own I assume the way the water worked on the paper??? I decided to leave it. What do you think?




  1. THIS is FAN-tastic! You did a terrific job at drawing, & I think the 'heart' was meant to be there. If you didn't do it, then you'd better think of WHO did!'re on your way with this one....

  2. Mary. I hope you enjoyed every part of this journey. Keep it is beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Mary..I hope you enjoyed every moment of creating this piece. Keep it up. I love it!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I hope to use the comments to encourage me to learn and improve the posts here. I would especially like comments that would show me the type of posts you would like to see such as Copics, watercolor or other techniques or organization ideas.
