Hey! I hope that everyone had a great weekend.  The weather here wasn't so great, we had alot of rain so, I spent much of my weekend indoors.  I did manage to get a run in on Sunday.  I also finished up the illustrations above that I started last week.

I love how the colors blended on these!  As I mentioned before, with crepe paper paint, the colors are generally not as vivid as with conventional watercolors.  However, depending on the colors that I am using, I can get some really pretty results.  Another thing that I love about painting this way is that you never get the same result twice.  Also, the finished painting looks different when it's totally dry.  Sometimes when the painting is still wet, I'm not sure if it will turn out well.  It's fun to watch how the illustration develops right before my eyes.

In the near future, I will be selling prints of my ladies.  Hopefully in the next few weeks we'll be purchasing a new scanner/printer and we can get the ball rolling on that.  I'll keep you posted!

Have a great Monday!
