Making "Thank You" notes from Brown Kraft paper, paint sample stips, and a punch-out. (sort of an Ombre thank you note!)... You could use ANY punch...such as a HEART punch for Valentine's Day, and a Valentine's sentiment for the stamp.... USE white stamp pad for the words to pop off the brown paper!
aquarela+doodles: the thicker the watercolor + the less water you use, the better. make simple shapes (circles, squares, rectangles, etc). once dry, make doodles and drawings outlining the shapes with black pen. use white pen for details (balls, hearts, circles, etc). you can use this as a doodle by itself orrr turn it into a background for a scrapbook pg or art jounral (see: http://maisarmendonca.blogspot.com/2011/06/aquarela-faca-seu-proprio-papel.html)
