Recently, I decided to start painting again. I used to paint a lot in college, and I used acrylic. I decided that I wanted to try something different, so I went and got a watercolor paint kit from Hobby Lobby. It is awesome, it has everything you need, including colored pencils, which have been perfect for drawing my design before I paint it.

I decided to paint a ginger jar, since I am using them for my wedding and I have them all over my condo. I think it turned out pretty well. I would encourage trying painting as a hobby. You can watch TV, listen to music, and drink wine while you do it. It’s a good way to distress and just have time to be creative.

I’m the type that has to look at something to be able to draw it. So you’ll see I found an image on Pinterest then went from there. I’m happy with how it turned out after not painting in probably 5-7 years.
