“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”

Last week I didn't get to post on my photo series but I figured better late than never! This weekend we finally had Marli's birthday party after many weather delays! The kids had such a good time and the weather was finally beautiful. My sister in law took these precious photos of the kids with their new little friend, be still my heart!

Color // Text: Emily Green color palette.

Gosh, I love making these color palettes! This watercolor print by Emily Green caught my eye right away and I made sure that  I pinned it just for this purpose! I love the effects in this print, the texture and bleeding of colors makes the pattern really fun and unique. I also really love the bright pops of color against the neutral and blush pink colors. I would totally hang this print somewhere in my house, now to find a place!

Artist // Emily Green.

Sketchbook // One.

 It's finally time for my first sketchbook post! I talked about this last week sometime when I showed off some floral inspiration and I've worked on a few pages since then. I'm only going to post probably a page a week. This week I wanted to show you guys the little cover page that I created for my sketchbook. I played with gouache for the first time when creating it and I loved using it for all of the little white details. I don't use much blue when I do floral pieces so I thought I would switch it up and do something different with this arrangement. I am really pleased with the finished look.
Do you have any suggestions for what I should draw and paint next in my sketchbook? Let me know!

8/52 and a link up!

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”

The kids thought this week was the perfect week for silly faces. Hunter's new silly face had us all laughing, he was so proud. I love the last candid shot of him giggling, he looked like that the entire time I was taking pictures of them. He's such a ham.
