I’ve been really enjoying getting back into watercolors lately. It’s so much fun. I can be as creative and combine layout and art in a loose way. And most recently, I’ve been able to give my artwork as a gift! Below is my wonderful Aunt Joan who’s birthday is today! I made her a poster for her party yesterday in Michigan at an apple orchard.

Happy 70th Aunt Joan! We love you!

This is a little sign I added to one of my nearest and dearest Kari’s birthday Crocosmia!

And finally, this was a card for another 70 year old’s party. He collects tractors, has a firetruck and two trains on his property. Needless to say, Em was in HEAVEN at his party on saturday afternoon!

If you’re into watercoloring too, I’ve found a neat set of watercolor tutorials here on The Allison Show’s blog. I’m thinking of taking a class! I’ve never actually learned proper techniques!
