2016 Calendar - April to June
Yes, I actually made 20 of these little paintings! In August of 2015 I went to our local scrapbook show sponsored by CKC. I've gone every year for the past 5 or 6 years. The first few years I took classes - participated in swaps, etc. Now because it takes place during the first 2 days of our school year, I just go to the vendor fair.
As I turned a corner around the vendor booths, I was met with a HUGE impressionist type painting of a basket with flowers. (I LOVE LOVE LOVE the impressionist paintings!) Of course, I had to watch a demonstration! Since I already watercolor, the demonstrator gave me a bit of an advanced look at the technique. I was HOOKED! I love it so much - it ended up on the April calendar!
They are Art Impressions stamps, and though the company does all kinds of different stamp styles, this watercolor is by far my favorite!
The May wreath comes from something I saw on Pinterest. I used the Martha Stewart branch punch so much, I recognized it right away! Here's a flower wreath with some pretty pink flowers and bow for Mother's Day.
