When you're home bound, can't go anywhere, quarantined, have the "stay at home" order not only from the Governor but also from your children - you find things to do. Let's see.....I've read a lot, watched a couple of movies on the iPad (love technology), cleaned very little, played with Rambo, tried to exercise (LOL!), and piddled. Mainly I've piddled! Now if you don't know what piddling is, let me tell you - it's the greatest thing ever. You appear to be so busy but you're really not doing a single thing and certainly don't accomplish anything either. I learned that when I was working. The object was to look busy when you weren't!
Anyway, I was piddling around with this image the other day. It's from MFT and such a pretty flower. So, I got out my colored pencils, watercolors, and Zigs. I'm bound and determined to learn out to do this watercolor bit and also make something look good with the Zigs.
First I started off with my pencils though. The top card on the left with the multi colored flowers was done on Neenah paper using the colored pencils. The bottom one on the left was also using colored pencils but I used some Strathmore colored pencil paper. I really liked using them on the Neenah better.
Next up was using some Koi watercolors that have been gathering dust now for a couple of years. I used those on the top card on the right. No matter what I'm just not a watercolor person I don't guess. The bottom right card was done using the Zigs and water. Still a learning process on those but maybe getting a tiny bit better.
Anyway, there you have it and it was a fun way to piddle.
Thanks for stopping by.....and have a nice weekend.
