DIY Buffalo Watercolor Painting (Full Video Tutorial)

Lately I have been making a point to focus on the beautiful things in life. Even if that means not getting all my "real" work done as fast... I just want to create & be happy, and sometimes I focus too much on producing content, which tends to take all the fun out of being an artist, and leaves me super stressed out. So tonight I wanted to post a quick tutorial tonight on my process of painting watercolor animals. This is fun. This is my  therapy. :)

For this tutorial I will be doing a Bison, which is basically my favorite animal ever! Here's a random fact for you all: I have a good chunk of Cherokee in me, so if you ever wonder why I love natural, prairie, and Native American-ish stuff, there's your answer! :)

Isaiah 41:10-13 Kitchen Sign DIY & Printable Ink Stencil

I thrive in a minimal, clean house. There. I said it. Clutter stresses me out, and recently I have become a collector of things... beautiful things... but too many things. The walls in out home have really stumped me, because it's such a small house, and I want it to be bright and airy, so bold, colorful decor just didn't make me excited. With that said, we waited for about a year before even putting anything up on our walls. 

Well, drum roll: we finally put some holes into it, and I am loving how it turned out. 

Today I want to share one of the light and airy pieces of decor that we made for our kitchen. Have you see the before and after? CHECK IT OUT HERE. We thought about doing a "Market" or "Kitchen" sign, but my husband didn't like those ideas, and I really wanted to try to go for more of a letterpress feel anyways. So I thought I would try out my printer transfer method on Isaiah 41:10-13, which is one of my favorites, and VERY appropriate to put over a door in our house. Kind of like a daily reminder of our house being anointed.

DIY Styled Boho Beach Bachelorette

My sweet sister in law got married a couple weeks ago, and in addition to bringing two car loads of supples from my house 12+ hours to use for the wedding, we decided to throw her a surprise bachelorette/lingerie party with all my supples- on the BEACH!
