This weekend, hubby and I went to a Covered Bridge Festival. There were ten park festival locations centered around ten different covered bridges where they had a variety of handmade arts and crafts booths, food, historic re-enactments, demonstrations and live bands.
It was fun to stroll around the festivities and capture some photos of the bridges. We only made it to two, because we really didn’t decide to go or head out until mid-afternoon, but we enjoyed what we did see, and then ended the day with a nice dinner out.
The next day I decided to try to “doodlewash” one. My blogging buddy, Charlie at Doodlewash.com has stirred my creative desire to play around with this whimsical art style combining doodling and watercoloring.
I struggle with the doodling/drawing part, and then I totally overworked the washing/watercoloring part of this piece, but since I spent an hour and a half doing it, I am sharing anyway. (Chalk it up to one for the archives. Hopefully one to look back on to gauge improvement!)
Here is the photo I took that I used for my reference. It was such a sweet little bridge in a quaint community park.
And then, with some paint still in the palette and the urge to do something else, I decided to recreate a version of the DSP (designer series paper) I used in yesterday’s card post and made this piece below that I can use in a future card or project. It was fun to mix and splash and see how the colors dried. Loving the Autumn tones that remind me of the gorgeous weather we’ve been having these past few days!
Happy Monday all! Hope you have a great week!
Cheers & Hugs,
