  18. Very jealous of your watercolor skills! haha! Just curious as to what kind of watercolors you use (cake, tube, or liquid) and maybe brand? And do you use masking solution often?
    Thanks! ^_^

  32. Hear hear Shirley!! That is so true. My eldest is 4 and is on the brink of learning herself. It has reminded me of how wonderful being able to read is and how many wonderful books I've consumed in my life.

    A really great interpretation of the theme. And really beautiful and inspiring watercolour technique. Love that you allow white space in letting it all breathe. It's gorgeous!
