Handmade Watercolors

I've seen a lot of Instagram accounts for people who make watercolor paints recently. Honestly, I didn't even know that was possible and I am obsessed. I HAD to order some. So, I ordered a small pallet of handmade watercolors from an Etsy shop called Designs by Rachel Beth. Her watercolors are so beautiful and perfectly matched. She releases new watercolors every Friday-- how cool is that?!

I bought a small pallet called Let's Go Camping and let me tell you, the colors are perfect! I don't camp and the colors still remind me of camping! I'm so excited about that Toasted Marshmallow!

She also included a sample of her Neon Pink that is amazing! So bright and vibrant. I was truly surprised how vivid the color is.

So the first thing I did was make a chart of sorts to see how the colors look on paper in a little bit bigger swatches and how they blend.

Check out that pink!

I love how that Toasted Marshmallow mixes with other colors

Needless to say, I will be purchasing many more handmade watercolor pallets. In the meantime, I can't wait to play with this one!

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.

Art Journal: Dandelions

dandelion doodle:

This doodle was inspired by a dandelion I saw growing in the middle of a bunch of rocks. I was going to the hospital to visit my grandmother with my mom. On our way in, I saw the dandelion and asked my mom if she thought I should pick it for my grandma, as a joke, of course. She didn't think it was very funny, so I left the dandelion where it was.

I don't mind dandelions. I like the name and they're like little balls of sunshine. Plus, they give you wishes. It's hard for me to call them weeds.
