Today I'm working with some watercolor panels from Taylored Expressions.  I want to play with Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge this month, and these were a great way to get started.  The panels are a nice 3 X 4" in size, which takes up most of the card, but allows some space to embellish.  Here are my first 2:

Watercolor Panel 1

supplies: Simon Green Apple cardstock, dp from Doodlebug Kraft in Color - color pad, Taylored Expressions Uplifting watercolor panel, Spectrum Aqua markers and water, turquoise felt and a flower die, lime button

Watercolor Panel 2

supplies: white and Green Apple cardstock, dp from Doodlebug Sunkissed paper pad, Taylored Expressions Uplifting watercolor panel, Spectrum Aqua markers and water, heart dies from Simon Outline Hearts die set


Kathy's challenge runs all month, and she is encouraging us to do a little bit of coloring every day.  You choose the medium, and work on anything you want.  She'll be giving us daily inspiration, and there's a gallery link on her Day 1 blog post where you can see other people's work.  Share your creation there or on Instagram, marking it #THEDAILYMARKER30DAY.  I hope you'll join in, too!


  1. Lin, these are beautiful, and what a great way to kick off the 30-Day Color Challenge. I love each one! Hugs, sweet friend (you've inspired me today...now if I can get my "motor running," as my dad used to say - hehe!)

  2. Beautiful Lin, those watercolour panels are really something else. You coloured it perfectly! Seeing you in my comments always makes me smile. Have a wonderful day, see you at Day 3 ;)
