Watercolour Paints and Everyday Life

An order from Close To My Heart arrived on Friday.  I played with the paints on Friday night to make these:

A bit of layering with a vellum paper softened the paints nicely and the Cricut Artbooking Collection added the title and embellishments.  Super simple page.

A day with the youth at Mt Dobson on Saturday and Church on Sunday morning meant I couldn't play with my supplies till Sunday afternoon when I created these:

These are probably my favourite pages from this weekends creating as they use Everyday Life pages as the bases.  I love this way of documenting life because the pages are small and there seems to be less pressure to create stunning pages. I couldn't resist the opportunity to include watercolour paints on these either!

Rustic Home & Adventure Fundamentals

Love these two paper collections together, kind of like nature with a pop of colour!  Both paper sets are from the new 2016-2017 Annual Inspirations.  These pages were also an opportunity to play with the CTMH Artsitry Cricut Cartridge...its been great to use my Cricut again with renewed enthusiasm.

What is it about boys, sticks and finding things?  Great that he can entertain himself though.
