watercolor opener

First off, I’m so not an artist, and have never been interested in painting. But before we took off on a recent trip, my friend gave me this portable watercolor postcard kit, and I figured we should bring it. I actually never expected to take it out of our suitcase—because even with the best intentions, these journal/art/activitity ideas I always plan can’t compete with whatever we’re doing on vacation. Well, not only did we use the kit (which has 4 tubes of watercolor paints, 2 brushes, and some blank postcards), we fell in love with watercoloring. It could have been because almost everything looks good in watercolor, but I think it was just doing something together, where we were just looking at the landscape, and living in the moment. And it beats buying postcards.

    My eldest documented our island getaway this summer with beautiful water color postcards! (Some got mailed – and some ended up framed!) Love this.
