Technique Time: Watercoloring

Welcome to the final challenge for the month of June! This week, it's all about a technique - using watercolors. That may scare the pants off some of you but it really isn't as difficult as it may seem, especially if you are just starting out! There are SO many ways to use watercolors on projects - from splattering paints to detailed coloring of images to "smooshing" colors together with plastic wrap on top... the possibilities truly are endless.  You can use our watercolor palette or our watercolor pencils or even our inks could be watercolors...  How do you interpret this final June challenge?

Just a reminder that you do need to use some Close To My Heart products in your project.

There is still time to enter any of the other June challenges - you have until the end of the month to link up with any or all of the following challenges:
Now, let's take a look at how the design team chose to focus on watercolors. 

We look forward to seeing what you choose to do with watercolors! Use the link below to share your artwork.  You have until Friday to link up to any of our June challenges.

Pretty Pockets

Welcome back to Heart 2 Heart Challenges!  For our North American participants, summer is getting into full swing!  Remember that you have all month to play along with any of this month's challenges.  We hope that you will join us!  (Our May winners will be posted soon so be sure to check back.)

This week's challenge is Pretty Pockets.  Maybe you'd like to make a layout of a favorite article of clothing, or maybe you want to put an actual pocket onto a project.  Of course each Close To My Heart paper collection has two sheets of pocket-style rectangles, and we've got an awesome line of Picture My Life products.  No matter how you interpret this challenge, we want to see your Pretty Pockets and of course some CTMH products.

Welcome to another challenge at Heart 2 Heart. This week, it's all about FIESTA! Celebration! Kick up your heels and have some fun! Fiestas are celebrated in all cultures around the world in so many ways. Your fiesta may be taking part in a parade or participating in a traditional custom of some sort that includes dancing and feasting. It may be simply sitting around a barbecue. This is your chance to share your fiesta with us! 

Don't forget that participating in every challenge throughout the month makes you a Heart 2 Heart Addict. There has been just one challenge before this one - a colour challenge - so it's not too late to get caught up! 

Now let's take a look at how our Design Team shares their FIESTA! 

You have until the end of June to link up with this or any of the June challenges.
