Happy New Year! I always have a long list of resolutions about this time of year, and always at the top of the list..."I will be a better blogger." And while I start with the best intentions, somehow, the blog seems to slip away from time to time. That's not to say, I'm not keeping busy, I just do a better job of "micro-blogging" via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
As you may or may not know, it's almost time for the National Crafts and Hobby Association trade show, and in the craft world, it's like a second Christmas. It's a time to see all the newest products and to get inspired for the year ahead. And I am super excited about the show this year, because for the first time, I'm launching products into the market under the brand name Ken Oliver Crafts. It's a little hard to believe.
So, today I wanted to let you get a little glimpse of something new that will hit the market next week at the Winter CHA Show. It's a line of double sided craft papers called Watercolor. Here's an example of the Watercolor paper...the papers are printed craft papers with watercolor designs. Crafters and artist all over the world love watercolor looks, and it's not always easy to get the look...this new group of papers will let you achieve the look even if you're not completely confident with your painting skills...there are six styles in the product group, I am only gonna show you one today. I am really excited about this...this product line will let you create wonderful, elegant handmade cards and scrapbook with that water colored, mixed media look...half the work has been done for you!
Here's a little sneak peek project that I just created this morning, it's an 8"x8" card...it's quite easy to get this watercolor look with this paper collection!
I added a couple die cuts and used Stick It to make that really easy...
I really think you're going to love this new craft paper if you've ever wanted to create something with a watercolor look!
Now, for the rest of the week, I intend to share a few more products with the help of some friends who are style contributors for Ken Oliver Crafts...and hopefully I'll keep up with my New Year's Resolution of being a better blogger! Let me know what you think about Watercolor...is it something you'd like to use?
