Experimenting!!

Year ago I took watercolour and oil painting classes, and really enjoyed it, especially the watercolours. I have been thinking about trying my hand at painting my own backgrounds, and maybe even painting, scanning and extracting elements painted with watercolours. So today I spent a happy 2 hours browsing a huge art supply store near us, and splurged on watercolours, paper, pencils,brushes etc and a how to book to refresh my memory!!
I spent all afternoon playing, threw a lot away but eventually came up with 3 papers I liked. These are the start of the mini kit freebie for KimB's colour challenge, so in a few days or so you will be able to have them and tell me what you think!!Only 6 days to go until my grab bag is over! Some more LO's with it!

Jenni, your new papers are drop dead beautiful. There's nothing that can emulate 'real' watercolor etc. I love to do this too - alas have been sooooo busy cannot find time. :(

Thanks for sharing your pretty addon.
