Heart Shape Tree + Sponge Brush

Not exactly the shade of green I wanted but I like the shape. I was looking at printouts of trees and wondering.

What other heart shapes am I missing? AND there it was, the outter line of this tree forms a heart.

I want to glue the sponge back on the wood stick. and create more of a flower petal stamper. Yes, I could use the flower stamp for more trees and for the next book project.

When the handle brakes on the brush you customized, use the sponge anyway.

I almost started painting a bigger version of one of my favorite trees. The blues and the greens are beautiful. I’ll paint this tree but not right now.

I’m glad I didn’t. I could have. There was this other idea that didn’t work out. I wanted to cover the mess with dots but and even better idea strikes. I could cover up the mess with acrylic paint. I’ve already drawn the shape with a watercolor pencil. It’s going to be beautiful!

The big lesson for this week is to be proud of every piece. Every piece is a learning point.

Being proud of your work doesn’t mean perfection.

Our proud should always be in the process.
