TAWS post #15 - Love You!

Hi TAWS friends!  Can you tell I'm LOVING this month's release!?  This was for my 8 year old for Valentine's Day.  My creation today uses the ADORABLE little deer from the newly released Stumped set.  My sentiment is from the True Colors set.  I used an older sketch from MFT using a bunch of papers from a variety of Studio Calico kits that I have collected.  I embellished using some amazing wood veneer hearts, some sequins and a tiny scrap of white/gold baker's twine.
I used watercolor paint to color my image.  I have a crazy life and now that we are homeschooling our children I have very, very little time to craft - think 5-10 minutes a day if that.  So my processes regarding creating has changed a lot so now instead of spending 2-3 hours a day crafting I do my best to chip away at pieces of projects where I can.  This is one of the reasons a lot of my images are done in watercolor.  I will stamp a bunch of images in a watercolor pad and then take my watercolors and this brush with me wherever I go.  That way even if I have 5 minutes I can get something productive done!  It works for me where I'm at in my life now.
I hope you enjoy and find some time in your day to get creative!
