It's the 25th of the month already, so time to link up what you have tried out this month that is New to You.
This month I have been all at sea :)
At the beginning of the month we went on our first-ever Cruise.
So we spent a lot of time occupying these
On days at sea the ship held a craft class in the afternoon, so when I managed to tear myself away from the loungers and the view I got to try my hand at something else New to Me too.
My very first attempt at painting with watercolour pencils with a bit of decoupage thrown in :) The card front is a stamped image, which was painted by either dampening the watercolour pencils on a palette and applying as paint, or, as I did, lightly colouring the image with the pencils and then softening the applied colour with a damp paintbrush. I really enjoyed having a go at this, and as I have a set of watercolour pencils that I bought to mark quilts with, I will definitely have another go at it. In fact, I may just have bought some stamps that were 70% off in the garden centre yesterday for exactly that!
So that is what I have been up to that is New to Me this month, now it is your turn to link up your New to Me activities.
Link them up below and share your triumphs and/or disasters.
As ever please help to spread the word by linking back to this post in your post and/or adding the blog button to your sidebar.
Check out the other links and leave a comment along the way. The emphasis of this link party is to celebrate the trying of something new, whether it works out exactly as planned or not, so a little encouragement here and there would not go amiss!
The link will remain open until July 31st so if you haven't already tried something new you still have time :)
