My front yard...

So I went on a little field my front yard. I found some pretty amazing things. It was raining a little which made it even more fun. We had...("had" being the key word) this awesome mushroom know..the kind that you see in Disney movies and cartoons. I just couldn't stop taking photos of them, they were so fascinating! I was expecting a little garden gnome to come out at any moment...yeh, that never happened...
But I have to say..that it felt really good to just go out and shoot for fun..I've missed'll be seeing more posts like this in the future :)

F A L L ....

Fall is my favorite season....I love all the changing of leaves...the amazing colors..and the change in temperature. I love the summer...but unless I have on SPF 1,000..this girl looks like a lobster...not so cute. 
I incorporated my love for fall into our house...I love being resourceful and spending as little money possible. All I had to do was go into my front yard for all of this amazing decor...with a little acrylic paint, hot glue and some weird looks from my husband...I was done. It literally cost me next to nothing. I had some creative inspiration from one of my favorite artists & craft bloggers Alisa Burke. Thank you Alisa for your inspiration!

I found this amazing yellow branch across our street...I knew it would look amazing on our mantel...and it does!

...God created the creatures of the sea...

I remember as a kid I was always fascinated by the ocean and everything in it...I still am. From the colors to the textures, it's all so overwhelming...(in a good way) . The peacefulness of the beach and the sound of the waves...always makes me feel so close to I'm in His living room :) 

I love painting seascapes..especially underwater. And I have to say..that coral reefs are my absolute favorite. One of the things that I enjoy about painting with watercolors is that you can have as little or as much control as you want...for this one...I just let the paint drip...I created a wet wash just let the colors'll see a salt shaker in one of them...I used salt to create a textured effect. 

Thanks for stopping by!
