Playing with watercolors

Here is a little story:

Last Sunday morning as I was driving to my weekend class, I found the Highway to be blocked. I didn’t know an alternative route, and my phone battery was too low for navigation. I could have just come back home, but instead I went to Michaels! I must admit, I did feel a little guilty going there, but I tried to override the guilt by telling myself that I haven’t been to Michaels in a while! šŸ™‚

Anyways, I purchased a water color paint palette that I have been thinking about for some time, and a couple of other things…there are always those couple of other things!

Since I bought the palette, I couldn’t wait to have some fun with watercolors! Here is the card that I made on the same day:

I applied water with a brush on the water color paper before applying the paint. I played around for some time and then left it to dry. Unfortunately, the water puddled in the bottom center and made that undesirable circular blotch of color. Next time I will check in between before it dries completely.

While it was drying I had a little conversation with my 2.5 year old daughter, during which she told me that her favorite color was purple, that is, after I told her that she had to choose one color for a favorite color. We also talked about making the color scheme of her future room dark chocolate, gold and purple (I am not kidding!). So when I went back to finish the card, I had that conversation in mind, which explains my choice of sentiment and color combination šŸ™‚
