Painting with Water

I loved painting with water as a kid.
I liked how the colors would swirl together and turn from dots into a picture. I found some Paint with Water books for my kids and I was way more excited than they were. 
I'm pretty sure water color pencils are the adult form of painting with water.


I had a good time with this one. Yay for Fridays!

Did you also love those "coloring books" which had the dots of paint, and you would just add the water? MAGIC! Nice card.

Great card! Love the watercolouring. It's one of my favourite ways to colour but I'm just sooooo slow doing it compared to markers so I don't do it very often.
