Gift Idea for your favorite Artist

 I made this little travel watercolor kit for my Orvieto excursion.
 I have been planning to share with you f.o.r.e.v.e.r.
Today is the day.

 Tis the season; therefore, I suggest you buy one of the fragrances like Red Hot Cinnamon or Orange Cream Cakes. Then remove the fragrance cubes and bag them separately to accompany the gift.

You will need 6 tubes of watercolor. I don't necessarily recommend this brand as it doesn't have a lot of pigment like other brands.
But it will work and this is the 6 colors I chose.
Remove the label.
Choose 6 colors.
Squeeze the watercolors into the little tubs.
Leave sitting open until they dry.
In the front of my journal, I made a color study using each of the six colors to show how they mixed with each other.
Then I doodled and played with the colors.
Here is the kit all ready to go in a little zipper bag that I already had.
Add a pen, pencil, aqua brush and a small supply of tissue to blot with.
And you will have a very Artful gift.
I think it will be a bit hit!

  7. This is just as clever as can be. I think any painter would be thrilled with it.


  8. wonderful, sharon! what kind of journal is it? it looks like a pocket moleskine but i can't imagine it would behave so nicely with watercolors.


  9. Fantastic idea Sharon. I have a little travel watercolour set, but not all that happy with the colours in it. This is a great way to get colours you use and can mix well.
    Thanks for sharing. I'm on the lookout now for some of those melts.
