A couple of exciting things I’ve been up to. I like my old watercolor sets but wanted to try something a little more pricey to compare. I bought this Kuretake watercolor set and I’m really excited to get started on it. I’ll share swatches once I find the courage to actually use it. It’s so pretty, I’m nervous.
While I’m trying to build up courage to use the watercolor I decided to learn how to knit. I’m taking the class through Skillshare but I also found some really awesome tutorials on Youtube. I find that sometimes I have to combine different platforms of learning to get to my goal. The resources I will use are: Youtube, online paid classes, books, and magazines.

The 3rd book of the Lightbringer series!!!! Now I just need the author’s autograph.
I’ve always wanted to draw and paint on the pages of an old or unused book so I went to the thrift store yesterday and found one. I also found a few books that I don’t plan to draw or paint in. Stories For The Heart will be the unfortunate…or fortunate book, depending on how the book feels about being sketched and painted all over with my art. If I were a book, I’d be very happy. Got all four books for $3.75!
I was in need of a new guillotine cutter. The one I’ve had for 10 years was wearing down. Thought about ordering the same brand from eBay but saw a 9″ Fiskars from Micheal’s so decided to try it out. It seems to work great. It was also on sale for $14.00. Original price was $19.99. The other items were things I heard on Facebook and Youtube that I wanted to try out.
Spray bottles from Walgreen’s for $1.19 each. I’ll be using these to do some water color spray painting.
