Remember that watercolor doodle from last weekend? This is what it became.
this image on Pinterest, but after pinning it, I didn't really consult it again, just had the idea of filling a page with watercolor shapes and then filling them in with a fine-point Sharpie when it was dry. Periodically throughout the week I'd work on a shape or two. It's very relaxing! This is in a small watercolor sketchbook--no stress attached, it's a sketchbook. A place to play. And this was very much play, and very fun.
My kids and I are also getting ready for Tinkerlab's latest challenge.
The final result will be posted on Monday in my kids/art space.
Some other random things:
* I should be done embroidering my winter trees by now, but I went out Tuesday night (I did! with other adults!), and then yesterday I pinched the tip of my left index finger, resulting in much blood. I was afraid it would re-open if I tried to embroider and I'd bleed on all that hard work. Should be good to go tonight.
* See the dog on the sidebar? I joined the double-dog-dare at the Squam blog. I'm going to try to make myself walk this month. The lingering joint pain and fatigue from Lyme are sapping me (that's the quick, skimming-over-the-dirty-details explanation), and my instinct says that a bit of walking--nothing strenuous, just a stroller walk with my girl--might help both, if I don't overdo it.
