I’m Back! Did you miss me?

Hi friends! I will be working my way through comments and emails as soon as I can but I just wanted to pop in and let you know what I am working on for projects this week and show you what I painted on vacation. Also if you are interested in tutorials for any of the paintings I showed you today just let me know in the comments. I can record watercolor fairly efficiently (hence all the watercolor tutorials during my busy summer LOL!) and I am happy to if you want to see them:)



Here is a casual, weekly wrap up and preview of what’s to come vlog:)


Stuff I mentioned in the video:
Cotman watercolors
Zen 1/2″ (13mm) filbert watercolor brush with scraper handle
DIY watercolor blocks (tutorial here)

For those of you sick of watercolor tutorials I have some fun projects coming up this week:

  1. Fashion: Hand-dyed/stamped/painted scarf
  2. DIY scratch board (good one for the kids!)
  3. Back to School Apple for Teacher papercraft
  4. Under the Sea Party Invitations
  5. Friday we will have the 12:30pm ET live stream and it will be a watercolor:)


Here are still shots of the painting I shared in the video:)

During the video I mentioned a couple craftsy classes that you might like both by Anna Mason. I enrolled in her fruit class thinking it might help me with my strawberries:)

Fantastic Fruit-Texture & Form


Another nice one from Anna Mason is Realistic Watercolors Step by Step (it is mainly botanical flowers and a good place to start:)


Thanks for being awesome and til next time happy crafting!
