Lavender

Was able to squeeze in a little watercoloring tonight. Purple was the theme for today's dainty little florals.


A very simple mesh of two shades of purple and two shades of green.  It's been such a busy week, I'm so glad I had a bit of time to sit down and paint. :)

Perfectly imperfect

I used this fun splotching technique where there is really no precision in the strokes but more dabbling or quick 'splotching' with the paintbrush. It's soooo much fun....it's faster paced, it gives it that 'imperfect' and abstract look.


I wanted very bright colors to really make it pop....I thought about making the bird darker to contrast with the branches and flowers....but guess I just left it all blended together.  I think next time, I will make the bird a much deeper color.

Oh boy, I've really missed stamping and coloring and such.....painting/watercoloring is loads of fun and I've been enjoying the whole process, but I haven't actually picked up a stamp and stamped it on paper for a while, should try and get back into that soon.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

Mixin' it up

Today's painting has a little bit of color for everyone, a little blue, a little red, a little pink, some purple, browns, and blacks.

This one was quite hilarious. First try...didn't like it...so it was a re-do. Second try, liked it but then accidentally knocked over one of my water bottles and the water, inks, and brushes splattered everywhere.  Third try, I finally just blazed through it and hoped for no other mishaps.


I think I'll play with this one in different color schemes and different grouping schemes. I love leaving these blank with no sentiments and then I can fill in the sentiment later depending on the occasion needed.

Have a beautiful weekend, everyone!! Love and stuff...xoxo
