Random Bits and Monday Mood Board #26 Winners

Hello! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

I did some much needed house cleaning and then took some "me" time. I played with my watercolors, which I hadn't really been able to devote any substantial time to since January. It felt really good to just play.

I'm currently experimenting with the "loose" or "fluid" watercolor style. It consists of a lot of the wet on wet technique. This is really hard for me. More water means the less control I tend to have over the final results. And that requires patience to let it do it's thing - and trust that it will. I don't have much of either. LOL

I went through several sheets of paper, but finally ended up with something that I think I like.

Too bad it was just on a scrap piece. Boo.

Things have been really busy here lately, both at home and work. I'm slowly catching up with everything. I want to thank you guys so much for all of your kind words and stopping by to see what's up each day!

Speaking of catching up...I have some long overdue winners for you!
