For this week's challenge, I wanted to challenge myself to create some home decor with watercolor painting and brush lettering.

These wall art were painted with Sakura Koi Watercolors and Pentel Aquash Brushes on watercolor paper.

I also created some bookmarks on heavy white cards tock for my planner. I really enjoy watercolor painting and brush lettering. And I found that the only way to make beautiful painting and lettering is practice.

Some bookmarks were scanned from the watercolor painting on watercolor paper and printed out on the heavy white card stock.
