Third Week Recap of World Watercolor Month

Charlie, the founder of Doodlewash and World Watercolor Month, has given us thought-provoking prompts this year; these are my interpretations for the third week. The paintings are not meant to be masterpieces. The point is to simply enjoy the process of painting and not worry about the end product so much.

Forgotten - Rain Gear
Forgotten – Rain Gear

It’s a horrible thing to forget rain gear when it is pouring!

Machine - Screws
Machine – Screws

Most machines are held together by these.

Spontaneous - Ice Cream Run
Spontaneous – Ice Cream Run

On the spur of the moment, hopping in the car to get some ice cream!

Soft - Pillows
Soft – Pillows
Favorite Scent - Magnolia
Favorite Scent – Magnolia

Magnolia flowers emit an exhilarating, heady floral/citrus scent. I wish we had a magnolia tree in our yard.

Wiggle - Bobber
Wiggle – Bobber

We spent many hours as kids watching bobbers wiggle around in the lake, and it was so exciting when the tail end went vertical!

Organic - Mushrooms
Organic – Mushrooms

It seems that people either enjoy the taste of mushrooms or dislike them immensely. I rather enjoy them. How about you?

Bridal Shower

 I made a handful of these cards for bridal showers I attend recently. From blue patterned paper I cut a 3-inch umbrella with my Cricut. The paper flowers are from Recollections; I added some Crystal Stickles on the petals and white opal Liquid Pearls for the center of the flowers.

A silver-edged ribbon by Martha Stewart was tied onto the umbrella handle. The sentiment is from Stampin Up. I love how bright and cheerful this card turned out.
