Hello! Becky here today & I am pooped! I am in the middle of helping my husband's family with my mother-in-law's estate sale (she passed away last month). We are spending our days sorting through 50+ years worth of stuff & getting ready for a big garage sale this weekend. It's tiring, a bit overwhelming & a big eye-opener! (Don't collect too much stuff, because your kids & family will be the ones to go through it all in the end! Get rid of it now!!! Just sayin'! LOL!)
I knew that if I had ANY downtime that I would want to do something creative to renew my soul!
What better way than to play with watercolors? As many of you know, I am usually an acrylic paint girl, but unless you know what colors you want to play with, it's kinda hard to travel with acrylics! But, I recently ordered some goodies from Altered Pages & along with it, Jean sent this great little Faber Castell Watercolor kit to play with! It's all self-contained: 5 watercolored pencils, a sharpener, 4 pre-printed flower mini-canvas boards & DIRECTIONS - JUST add water! (Yes, it came with directions on how to blend & color in the cute little canvases!) I only had time for one tonight, but hope to do the rest soon! I followed the blending techniques in the little book & then added some pen to it.
I have tried watercolor pencils before & I have to say, I HATED them! BUT, these pencils are so nice & blend so well when wet that I am actually looking forward to working with them some more! (I also ordered a water brush & was really bummed when we were driving & I realized I forgot to pack it! But this would be the perfect project for it! Next time for sure!)
