Quick Fall Cards
Hello! It's Nicole Watson back with Donna Downey's 2018 Artist Gang!
This week I'm using Donna's single stem stencil to make some really quick cards for fall with minimal supplies and derwent inktense blocks. These cards are simple, but you could continue to enhance them with doodles, lines, or stamped sentiments. Or, instead of making cards add a fall stem to your art journal.

Hi! I’m Nicole Watson, a Midwest girl who married a Southern boy and now lives in Houston, Texas.
Art has always been a constant for me … from collecting random bits of paper at a young age, to selling my first painting in high school, then discovering mixed media while studying art and design at Iowa State University (ISU). Other stops along my art journey include scrapbooking, card making, freelance photography, and layout/graphic design.
I enjoy the messy hands that result from creating. Mixed media allows me to discover new art forms while uniquely combining the things I love most—whether fun mediums like watercolor, pastel, or acrylic on canvas to textural elements like gesso, ephemera, and other found objects.
My proudest accomplishments this past year include completing Donna’s 48 Weeks class and binding the 17 plus pound journal that resulted, as well as finishing my Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree/Russian Studies minor as a distance student at ISU.
After taking many online and in-person art classes and creating in my studio, I’m excited to begin sharing my art with the world while hopefully inspiring others to do the same.
