I have always said that I am not an artist, yet I have been able to add art to almost all the things that I make. Today, I want to explore the world of watercolor. I have been inspired by my good friend Wendy Dewar Hughes and her work on SummerBay Studio. She has put together an article that teaches you how to watercolor and to not be intimidated with it. I still am but will try in a way without the actual paintbrush.

I still believe that every person loves to color using either crayons or pencil crayons. I know as a child, it was one of my favorite things to do. I even got into the paint-by-numbers fad. I think my mom was tired of having so many oil paintings on canvas and velvet that she directed me to other things to make. I do remember the countless hours of fun as the painting emerged in front of my eyes as I added lots of color to that flat numbered piece of paper.
It seems that getting myself into a routine is the best way for me to get things done. Every morning I have been posting one of my surface designs on a product and posting it to Etsy. I am determined to put up one product each day so I get a better feel for what will sell.
