I am who I am and that's all that I am. I love my family and friends. I love to make art, all kinds! My interests are here there and everywhere! I'm glad you stopped to visit me!

Just thought I'd share a little tutorial for ya today! Wet on wet watercolor! I LOVE to play with watercolors this way.

Just a cheap-o set from wal-mart.

Wet the paper with lots of water.

Wet the brush with water and paint and just touch it to the paper and it just bleeds or wick, what ever you want to call it, I just love to watch it! Weird I know.

Add more colors and watch them blend and bleed or wick together! Add more water as you go if needed to keep the paper wet. Keep your brush pretty drippy sometimes too.

Then use salt. I had this on hand so it's what I used.

Sprinkle some in your hand and sprinkle it on the paper.

Especially in the puddles of water and paint. The salt soaks it up.

Let it dry or you can use a heat gun to speed it up, but I like to let it do it's own thing. That's why I do this before I go to bed and when I wake up ,I have a nice surprise!

Then you scrape off the salt and you get this.

And this! So fun! Now go make some art people! We need something perty to look at!

So yesterday was a pretty darn good day! I did a little shopping with my girls and I did go to the book store but didn't see this one, until I got home and it was in my mailbox!!

 WOW! So excited to see this in print! So cool!

 Love the way they layed it out and everything!!

 Yep,I even posted it to Facebook!

I can't wait to get some other things done so I can send them in as well! Am I hooked? I think so! Not trying to toot my own horn but, I'm proud of myself!
 I hope you all had a great weekend!
