I love the colors in this week’s Paper Players challenge.

My stamping mentor, Mary Fish, challenged us to do something on a card that was out of our comfort zone.  Well…water coloring is not in my comfort zone.  It’s so far out in fact, that for my first watercolor “masterpiece” I decided I should start with a blob of water coloring.  I fully intend to increase my watercolor skills from here!  There’s no place to go but up!

I enjoyed making the first one so much, I made a second.  I actually like the Pool Party background the best, however.

Hope you have fun weekend plans.  I’m going on a date with my youngest son, Keegan, to 12 Angry Men at the Des Moines Playhouse.  Keegan is an actor and singer and has been going to plays and musicals with me since he was about 5.  He had his first voice lesson for his solo contest last night.  The song he chose is in German.  Although the singing sounds good, I have no idea what he is saying. LOL.  Abby has her last Archery meet of the season this weekend too.  It’s actually going to be warm in Iowa this weekend.  Tomorrow we are supposed to get to 60 degrees which never happens in Iowa in February!

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

    I would say your attempt at watercolor was a smashing success. Beautiful. I enjoy hearing what the kiddos are up to–and you and Steve too.
