Watercoloring- Autumn Tree

¬†Hey everyone! It seems like every week im wracking my brain for ideas to blog about. Today was no exception! So I decided to simply watercolor and see where it takes me, and I’m very happy with how it all turned out in the end! A list of my supplies will be listed down below (short list since I didn’t use much!) One thing I do want to touch on is that I watercolored on my own pad that I made following a tutorial from the fabulous Lindsay Wierich aka The Frugal Crafter!

Show some product love

Hi everyone! This is the first post in a monthly series called product love! I realized that some things in my stash have gone without use for awhile. I wanted to make an effort to really use those products, and figured a post a month on my blog highlighting that product would encourage me to show more products love, and maybe encourage others to do the same! All products that I used will be listed at the bottom of the post! So let’s start with this month’s product: my Martha Stewart punches! On a whim during a spring shopping trip I bought 4 of the small frame cartridges on sale at TJMAXX for about $5. It was the first kind of punch set I ever bought and I was excited to use them! It took a TON of research to figure out what punch would actually fit the cartridges and I bought the right one…or so I thought. Turns out, it was a starter kit for ANOTHER set of cartridges, not the ones I bought on sale. Booooooo, but I am an engineer’s daughter! I was determined to somehow make it work with the starter kid and after trial and error, finally figured out a method!
