Purple Passion

A big thanks to Laura, aka "the Diva," for challenging us to use purple.  This creation took on a life of its own and I love it.  Hope you do, too.

    1. Those are the exact words that crossed my mind when I looked at it: soft and dreamy.... Beautiful!

  5. Karen - You are right - I used a purple watercolor pencil, a blue sharpie pen, Whispers pens (similar to Copic in that they have a blender pen), then I went crazy with regular watercolors. I ended up using a white galaxy marker to bring back some of the white.

    Thanks, everyone.
