Taylored Expressions October Release Day!

Hello! Welcome to Taylored Expressions October 2015 Release! All products that we have been peeking this week are now available in the TE store, HERE! Before you head off to shop, I have one last project to show you.

I used the new Holiday Grumplings (stamp set and coordinating die set sold separately). It's no secret that I love the grumplings series! I think it's one of my favorites at TE. Their facial expressions and the sentiments just crack me up! Once again I couldn't pick just one, so I used all 5 images and sentiments.


I created a subtle watercolor background for each one using Brusho crystals. It was my first time playing with Brushos, and I'm addicted! I love how you're not really sure what colors you'll get until you watch the crystals react with water. Each grumpling was watercolored with Zig Clean Color markers. Here's a look at each one. The freezin' cat:


Reindeer:


This is Sabrina's favorite and quite appropriate for her (she's a big Frozen fan and even though she always says she wants to build a snowman, she really doesn't because she doesn't like to get messy in the snow):


The "jingling" fox:


and finally, the penguin (Dan's favorite):

  4. Ah, I LOVE it! I love those adorable little grumplings. What a wonderful winter card set. I will have to look into the crystals. Inspiring background. For a minute I thought you did a watercolor smooshing technique. Thank you for the inspiration.
