Still Painting...

I bought a expressive painting book by Annie O'Brien Gonzales and tried my hand at painting some of her designs and adding my own touch with my metro tissue paper and black and white stripes.

I like how you don't have to paint realistic flowers, but just an interpretation, it's so less stressful.
I like the look of the bold black and white contrast.
And then I had to go back to painting one of my Paige dolls. I can't decide which I prefer drawing, flowers or dolls. I'll have to play with incorporating both.

Then I had a play date with my good friend Lois today. We played with watercolors and stamps.
We used the Prima and Jane Davenport watercolor sets.
And the Dina Wakley's face stamps.
Lois's dolls
My dolls's and flowers
I glued a couple of items in a 1941 year book from Lois - thanks, love it!

It's been raining so much here, that painting is a perfect indoor activity. More rain to come next week.. .I guess I'll be doing more painting!

Have a great week!

More Fun Painting...

I've been taking an on-line watercolor class from Jeanne Oliver and having so much fun painting with watercolors. Below are some of the pieces I've made...
I've been using the Prima and Jane Davenport watercolors.
Pictured below, are painted in my small Jane Davenport butterfly journal.
I recently bought some new stamps from Roben Marie Smith and did a couple more art journal pages...
And last, but not least, I had to share these adorable mini desserts my daughter, Rachel, made...
You can watch how she made them using an easy bake oven on her YouTube channel Kawaii Sweet World.
Have a great week!
