AEDM Weekend Catch Up

Hello and happy Monday! I surprisingly got a lot done this past weekend for AEDM.

My husband had flowers delivered to me last week and I've had roses on my mind ever since. On Friday, I decided to try another loose method of randomly dropping a couple of wet watercolors onto watercolor paper. From there, I lightly layered in colors to form the rose. Lastly, I grab my trusty micron pen and inked in the final lines.

After I was done with my rose, I threw in a couple of final details to something else I feel like I've been working on and off for a while. I bought a couple of gel pens and decided that I wanted to try it out! So I colored in the borders, added in a couple of colors around the letters, and after who knows how long I've been working on this - I'm calling it done.

On Saturday, I woke up with a stomach ache. By midday, I added on a headache and fever. I wasn't sure if I could handle getting anything done for AEDM. I eventually found myself clear-headed enough to grab my sketchbook and doodle for a little bit.

On Sunday, I was feeling a little better, but I decided to keep it easy and just hang out with the family. Towards the end of the night, I decided to doodle a little to keep the AEDM groove going.

Now to enjoy my kids week off and get hopping on more projects!

Thank you to everyone for the kind comments and get well wishes!

Tracey - my hubby wasn't like that either, it took a LONG time for him to be a little more lovey-dovey. :)
