Birthday Challenge: Do a Painting

Thursday, July 25, 2013

This year I started my first birthday challenge.  I have 27 things that I want to accomplish while being 27.  I'm knocking one off the list today!

Do a Painting

Lately I've been playing with watercolors and WOW - it is so therapeutic!!  Now, I'm no painter, but I'm definitely enjoying it and possibly you-tubing some techniques!??  I realize that I treat the paintbrushes as if they were make up brushes - I don't know if this is wrong or right.  I came up with this little phrase on a day where I was completely caught off guard and really just needed to remember to breathe the rest of the day.  I loved my doodle that I did so much, that I translated it with watercolors.

I am enjoying this painting in my bathroom (that has the worst lighting ever!, with no access to windows for natural light - gasp, a blogger's nightmare - so I moved it for the pic)!!

This painting I did - to send to my Cara Box recipient this month!!

Do you like to play with watercolors?  I found a new creative outlet that I hope to learn more about.  See you tomorrow for a fun round up of something cute and small!!

    1. It is put on by Wifessionals. It is similar but it is themed, you include 5 gifts and the box should be worth at least $25.
