The Digital Dozen Does Decades: 60s Water Marble

Hi everyone!

This month’s Digital Dozen theme is Decades. I just got back from my lovely California vacation, so I haven’t had all that much time to think up ideas for the theme, but I’ll do the best I can! I originally had a 30s idea to start off with, but I didn’t like how it turned out so I have decided to start off with the bright and colourful 60s instead! And what better way to use the bright 60s colours than in a water marble?

The Digital Dozen Does Colour Contrast Day 3: Red and Green

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does colour contrasts week and today I’m going with the third ‘obvious’ contrast – red and green! I’ve already shown you my blue and orange and purple and neon yellow nails. We actually had a bit of a discussion in the Digital Dozen group about how to avoid making red and green look too Christmassy, I think I managed it though 🙂Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Contrast - green with red flowers

#31DC2016 Day 20: Water Marble with Flowers

Hi everyone!

Can you believe we’re on day 20 of the 31 Day Challenge? We’re two thirds of the way there, I hope I can make it through the last stretch! Today’s theme is water marble. You may remember the Water Marble Wednesday feature I had on the blog for a while – I have done a lot of water marbles since I started Painted Fingertips. It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve done one, though! I’ve been more focused on other techniques over the past few months, but water marbles are still something special.
