Get your paint on!

Today, I was feeling a little crafty.  The kids and I haven't been out of the house much in the past few days, so I decided to find something to do.  When I saw these inspiring photos from here and here, I pulled out my watercolor paints and started to play! 

Since summer is nearing, I chose several soothing shades {say that 3 times} of blue.  These colors remind me of our favorite place...

Seaside, FL

Pretty, huh?

So, this is what the first painting looked like after a few simple strokes...

I practiced some more, and ended up with this one that I loved.  I put it in this simple white frame, which I think totally makes the colors pop.  I am so digging watercolor prints right now!

This project was super easy and super fun.  Grayson had a blast painting with me while Sloaney napped.  I plan on changing the frame out with different paintings that coordinate with holidays/seasons.  Fun, right?

Happy Hump Day!
