So today, I’m even more excited to announce I’ll be partnering with Michaels craft stores as one of their Michaels Makers bloggers. It’s kinda like Michael himself called (I don’t know if there is a real Michael) and said “hey, would you be interested in coming in, buying all the craft supplies you want, and making projects at least once a month? And then we’ll totally share your project with our customers and tell them how cool you are.”
Umm, yes Michael. You sure know how to woo a girl. I am so in. #fistpump
Fast forward to today. I’m not using my shiny math degree. I have a job (blogging) which involves painting, creating, making, sharing. When I do these projects, I feel something awakened in my soul.
But I still haven’t picked up watercolors in the last 12 years. Besides the times when I’ve tried to show my kids they could create paintings without the excessive use of the color black.
Or wait, maybe I was there? (I’m “in” the middle)
I started with an intro to watercolor painting by artist Yao Cheng.I instantly felt the calming effects. The brush strokes, the colors blending and mixing unexpectedly, the saturation of pigments. It awakens something in you.
If you ever enjoyed painting and miss it (or want to start!), take this free class. It’ll be like you never set down that brush.
Each of the classes are available online for FREE on Michaels.com until 8/22.
And if you want to see more details on the Michaels Makers Summit, as well as other projects created from the classes, you can find their recaps here:
