The cashier at Hawaiian Graphics gave me these two sheets of sample $$$$Daniel Smith$$$$ watercolor dots. I was so excited because no way could I afford to buy the paints. A tiny little 1/2 ounce tube costs at least $10.


The paint is of such good quality that a little goes a long way. Aren't these candles so cute?  I copied this card by Mary McBride of betrueoriginals.

I painted enough to make nine greeting cards. From sample dots! How cool izdat, yah!

Score! Your skill level has increased to the point of making good with quality paints! If I go I'll ask them for sample paint cards and give to you. Nice nice job on the candles, and cats, and all the ones to come.

j: I am watching your skills develop and I am so envious. I wanna break out my (cheap) paints and do it, but then I get sooooo lazy, hazy and stop. I am loving your stuff! I know you have so much unleashed creativity (so unfair!!!) -N

I'm still using the first card, Les. Didn't touch the second card yet. Trying to think of a worthy project.
