Friday Craft, Watercolors

Mmmmmm, watercolor palette, ready to go.

I have added another craft to my list, although technically this is a sub-category of painting which I’ve been doing for awhile. Watercolor is just a different animal.

On our camping adventure in August, I brought a makeshift watercolor kit with me (some paint dried onto a Mary Kay palette) and loved doing watercolor in the wild. When I got home I bought a better palette and a set of inexpensive gouache paints. If I use these up, I plan to buy some better watercolors. But, since I’m in the habit of passionately falling in love with crafts for short periods of time, I’m limiting myself for now.

There are many many tutorials on You Tube, including a 4 part series by an artist in the Santa Cruz Mountains (where I used to call home). I’ve been considering joining the You Tube masses and starting a Mama Carrie channel. Would you like to see some tutorials from me, on painting, jewelry, zentangles, book making?
