As you may have gathered by all of my Insta posts and my last blog entry, I'm crushing on the Buddha Board. So much so, that I took it on Studio 5 today and shared it with my TV friends. I wanted to share how fun it is to use the board as a practice surface for watercolor painting and brush lettering.
From my practice, I put together a few projects. First, some watercolor samples.
This is my favorite. I made it for my sweet Lulu's nursery. It's a lullaby I sing to her from the movie Lady & the Tramp. <3
I LOVE painting on photos, but it can be a scary step since paint and calligraphy ink are so permanent. Another reason I adore this board. It's a great practice surface. I draw it on the board first and when I'm satisfied with the look, I translate it to the image. Here are a couple of examples.
Now, to decide what I'm going to write on this DARLING photo taken by Elisha Snow Photography. It's going in a frame in her room. Any cute quote suggestions? Lay 'em on me. I need some ideas. :)
Thanks so much for visiting today, Buddha buddies. I hope this inspires you. Oh, and guess what! I was flipping through my Paper Source catalog last night, and the Buddha Board is available there! Woot! Another purchasing option. Or you can get it here.
