When life hands you lemons, make lemonade! My first attempt at Water Color!

I was encouraged by Georgiana to try a new technique and to get out my water coloring supplies!
I purchased these supplies about 2 months ago and they have been sitting in the bag!

I have a lot to learn, but I had fun creating outside of my comfort zone! 

Here is what I created:

Jar and Lemon Dies, When life hands you lemons, make lemonade stamp from Jillibean Soup
Paper from DCWV Stripes, Dots and Plaid
Recollections pearlized
Blue tissue paper, Trendy Twine Bumblebee
DoubleClickSkittles: Sailboat blue and lemonade
Lemon Sticker from Jolee's Stickers
Freckled Fawn Enamel Dots, Star Dust Stickles

Skittle Lovin'!
