I just wanted to do a quick share of one of my new favorite things. For any of you who would love to dabble in some artistic endeavors but are unsure if you can do it. This is for you!!
I have been wanting to learn to paint in watercolors for years. My Mom dabbled in it and I have always been drawn to the dreamy, somewhat abstract images that the medium produces.
However, work and Momming (pretty sure that's not a word) have not allowed me time to take a class. But now thanks to the generosity of online art teachers, I am finding my happy place!
These are a few of the projects that I have learned how to do through a site called Let's Make Art. Sarah is just so charming and she really makes it so easy to follow along and produce great results...even when I have no idea what I am doing! You can either purchase their kits individually, subscribe to their kit service or just access the online tutorials and use your own materials and supplies. They make it so, so easy! I also love the idea of their gift service. At $15 per project, it's a great, affordable way to share creative arts with a loved one.
I'm also loving YouTube instructor Creations CeeCee. She gives fantastic advice on how to spark creativity and find your own look. Her videos are especially useful after you learn some of the technical basics of watercolor. Then you can play with some of her exercises to develop your own personal style. She also explains how to build your own supply inventory (so you don't waste money purchasing the wrong materials). I now have a list of cool things to request for my birthday and Christmas this year!
My goal is to set aside a couple of hours each Friday or Saturday to watercolor and sketch. It is a wonderful way to quiet my mind and de-stress from the weeks' craziness. I love love love it and am so inspired to see what these ladies can teach me next! I hope some of you will check out these resources and give this medium a try. Please share if you do!
Thanks for visiting!
