Back in April 2017, I embarked on a journey called the #100dayproject. My project involved painting a watercolor wreath for 100 days.

I’ve always enjoyed craft fairs. Witnessing intricate handiwork in the form of jewelry, apparel, home decor, and art is something that I’ve always admired.

I used whatever materials I had on hand–scrap paper, crayons, yarn, ribbon, etc. Now that I’m using primarily watercolors, I’m excited to show you what my latest […]
When I did my #100daysofwatercolorwreaths project, I challenged myself to do a short series on arranging sea creatures on a wreath. Some of them were difficult, and some were really fun to do. I certainly had my favorites, and I think the stingray remains the top favorite. Keep reading to learn how to paint a […]
