April Showers Bring May Flowers — Rain Photos + The Cat

Hello!

Yesterday we had some April showers! (It was actually more like inconsistent, light bursts of rain, but I’ve been wanting to use this title for at least a year now… 😉 )

When I saw that rain was beginning to fall, I grabbed my camera and took some photos.

Enjoy!

Happy Easter 2019 – Christ is Risen!

Happy Resurrection Day!

I hope you all are having a blessed Easter. Today, remember to look beyond the bunnies, baskets, and candy to the true and glorious reason why we celebrate this holiday–that the Savior, Jesus Christ, died and then resurrected from the grave, victorious over sin and death!

I wanted to share the lyrics of “Behold the Lamb” by Sovereign Grace and some photos.

Cameras – Old and New {Photoshoot}

Hello!

One of the classes I am taking this semester is a film photography class. It’s been a lot of fun learning how to use a film camera and how to process the photos in a darkroom.

2019 Goals-in-Progress

Also known as, “I Didn’t Post my Goals in January, so Here They Are Now!”

I was thinking about posting my 2019 goals at the start of the year, but then time flew, so I decided to make a late post where I show you my goals and where I’m at with them so far!

My method was inspired a lot by Hannah, from The Striped Plaid. She made a very helpful post with ideas for making and achieving your goals. You can check it out here!

 

My goal method included listing out the things I wanted to accomplish, and then placing them into a quarterly plan.

Let’s begin! 🙂

How to Make Watercolor Resist Art – with Crayons

Hello!

One of my favorite art mediums is watercolor. A unique and fun technique for card-making and art pieces is watercolor resist. It’s very simple–the special ingredient to make it work is a white crayon!

Here’s what you need:

  • Watercolors
  • A paintbrush and water
  • A white crayon

You don’t need a cat for this technique, though they do make a nice companion.
