Watercolors 101

Rules of Watercolors...
1. Dip the brush in the water, then in paint
2. Brush onto the paper and repeat

3. Above all else, keep the paint on the paper

One day last week Eva had a great time painting with Melia. This was her first time with watercolors and she loved being "big" like her sister.

As you can see Eva has not grasped the rules of watercolors. EVERYTHING is going in her mouth these days.

My thoughts...she is contained in her highchair (it is not going to end up on the walls and floor), watercolors are non-toxic and she is having a great time. A quick bath wahsed away all the evidence.

You will see from the pics, Melia thought that Eva was on to something.

I am a follower of your blog. I found it through a comment on MckMama's. Don't know if you have seen this girl's blog, but thought I would pass on the word for prayer for her and her little girl.

too cute.

Running after the heart of the Father. Seeking His face in All things. Walking His will out in my life. These are the desires of my heart. Along the way I am a wife and mom who wants to capture memories that will last a life time.
