Busy Busy Me Day TWO!

Welcome back to my week of 
GROWING IN UNITY!!


This week is all about me!
hehe

ONE lucky person who leaves me a comment will win
TWO Itty Bitty Stamps.
- please, one comment per GIU post - 

I am here to show you what I have made for day TWO.

I have seen so many fabulous projects made with watercolors,
so wanted to give it a try.

I am SOOOO not a painter. 
Yes I paint,
but am a novice at best!

But, even with that, and using my kids' watercolors,
I'm still pretty happy with this card!


Stamps - Naturally You


Other stuff used - 
watercolors
Papertrey Ink paper
Watercolor Paper
Recollections Paper
Moment Ink


And some more of that OTHER stuff I have been working on - 

I made these for a nice local woman for her Christmas presents!



These are reclaimed pallet wood. 
I take down the pallet 
(takes me FOREVER to get them baby's apart!)
Sand the wood.
Cut to size and put together.
Stain, sand again, spray with clear paint.
Use my Texas stencil to paint, clear coat again.
Put the vinyl wording on....

But they turn out awesome!

AND, don't forget to leave me a comment for 
GROWING IN UNITY!
One lucky person will win TWO Itty Bitty Stamps!

OK I'm supposed to be here to comment for GIU and I do love that card (such pretty watercoloring) but OMG I love the pallet sign! Squee! I mean, I am a Texas gal and all. I have a wooden TX shape I've been trying to decide how to decorate so this gives me some inspiration. Love it!

Beautiful card! If this is your first try at water coloring, I think you've found a hidden talent! I love the water color looks, but I don't think mine have turned out half as nice! Cute wood pallet projects too!
