JULY 2021 CHALLENGE #7 - ANYTHING GOES w/Optional TWIST: WATER COLOR

 Hello, Front Porchers!
The Optional Twist to our ATG challenge this month gives us all an opportunity to showcase our watercolor skills!  You may use "smooshing" or any other faux water coloring technique you have learned.

As long as you apply water to your inks (Dye, Distress, Pigment, chalks, and Pan Pastels) it counts as water coloring in our book.  You may also use watercolor pencils.

Looking for Ideas? Here are 3 helpful videos!
Thanks, Judy!

GUEST DESIGNER
Hi! My name is Maja (Ma-Mi on blogger). I'm a single mom and a teacher from Slovenia. I love traveling and sports but crafting is my greatest hobby since I remember. My favorite style is CAS. I wish to have much time for watercolor painting, for now, card making is my main hobby.  
I invite you to visit my blog Rilček in Kljunček (nicknames of me and my son when we were toddlers). Be safe! Maja

The challenge this month is an Oldie but a Goodie,
Paper Piecing!
Paper Piecing is one of those techniques that open the door to creativity at all levels.  From beginner to expert, paper piecing can make you look like a crafting genius.  We know that our Front Porch Gang will ROCK this challenge!

Playing The Twist

Special Mention
613 Avenue Create wants to recognize the wonderful work of this artist. Her parchment creations are always beautifully composed and flawlessly executed.  This was the first technique I tried as a paper crafter, and I failed miserably.  I know this is not an easy skill to master.  Thanks, Emily,  for sharing your talent with us!  We always enjoy your visits! ~Chana Malkah

MASTER ROCKER GUEST DESIGNER

Vivian Foo
Hello, my name is Vivian Foo and I am from Singapore. I still considered myself a Newbie having only started Crafting in 2014. I enjoy working on Art Journals of various sizes and in White, Black, and Kraft papers. I love creating my backgrounds with assortments of Stencils and Mixed Media Stamps. I also use Moulding Paste, White and Black Gesso, and Matte Mediums. I love experimenting with a repertoire of Coloring Mediums, inks, and Paints. I am inclined towards wacky and quirky characters and always exploring new techniques too.

The bird is paper pieced with Chinese Dictionary Pages, and the flowers are paper pieced using collage papers.
