Take time to reflect on your journey.....

Happy Friday! Just a few more cards today then I'm off and running again.  I'm far from where I want to be with my watercoloring skills....I would love to be at that point where I can master it, but watercoloring is hard, it's probably one of the hardest mediums to work with ~ in my opinion.  It takes lots and lots of practice and I will definitely be practicing more.....but this sentiment that I used on this card - I think states it perfectly how I's truly the 'journey' and progress:

I've also been playing with different types of ink to see which ones work much fun to explore and experiment.  Some inks I've found run and are too wet.  Often times I feel I don't have the right tip for the brush.  Right? We all lack some type of crafty tool that we want! ;)

So much more experimenting to do.  Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! xoxo

I normally do not comment but thought I would now. I've been following you for a while and admire your work. These are beautiful cards. I met you briefly when you designed for Lizzie Anne back then - youre just one of the nicest people - in this industry. Really lovely work.
