Wonderful World With Nuance

This is my post on the Magenta Blog today, April 18!
Sometimes I like to just paint with Nuance. To do that, I tap some colors into a watercolor palette and add a little water mixed with Perfect Pearls powder. I can use these just like any watercolors, and the colors are so beautiful! I find this to be such a fun, Zen coloring experience.

I stamped the "Bubbles" stamp from the new Magenta Summer 2016 collection onto watercolor paper, and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Using a watercolor brush, I painted clear water into each circular space, one by one, and added touches of Nuance here and there. The Nuance expands to fill the space covered by water.

Since my plan was to use the new "Wonderful World" sentiment, one of the bubbles at the bottom became the Earth, by first using some blue and then some green Nuance. I added a sprinkling of sequins at the end.
