I had a huge day planned for today and due to circumstances beyond my control nothing went as planned. First of all I had a hair cut/highlight appointment this morning. I left early because I finally had some Joann's coupons and the other day when I was there they had some of the new cuttlebug folders. I drive right by Joann's to get my hair done so it was going to work out just perfect...wrong! When I got to Joann's they were completely out of all of the new folders. Just my luck. Instead of using my coupons on CB folders I bought a pad of watercolor paper and some decorative candy flowers that go on cakes. Not what I went there to get but I was making a cake this afternoon anyway so at least the coupon didn't go to waste. Tonight Tom and I were supposed to go to a movie/pizza party at a friends home but Tom woke up not feeling well this morning so I was going to go alone tonight. I had my sister help make a really cool pink and purple checkerboard cake for me to take along tonight. I frosted it and decorated it with the cute candy flowers I got at Joann's. A couple hours later when I should have been getting ready for the party...I started feeling like total crap. I think I should have just stayed in bed this morning. I called my friend and had her pick up the cake so at least someone would still appreciate our totally cool spring colored checkerboard cake. So instead of partying with friends I hung out in my stamp room and experimented with the watercolor paper that I bought earlier today. The verdict...I TOTALLY SUCK AT WATERCOLORING. I tried and tried to figure out how people make such beautiful things on watercolor paper but the more I tried the uglier things got. In an effort to "fix" my image I had to resort back to touching it up with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I was determined to make something with this and in the end it turned out ok despite the fact that I colored and recolored and recolored again. I'd love to hear how you all watercolor, maybe I'm doing something wrong.
Hope you all had a better day than we did. I think I am heading off to bed, early. I just have to remember that tomorrow is a new day!
