You Touch My Heart -- for Path of Positivity

Greetings, and happy Monday!  It is a very happy Monday for me as I return to work.  I've been off for 5 months, battling cancer and recovering from chemotherapy.  I'm so happy I'm feeling good enough to return to the job I love and to the people I love at the nursing home!

It's time for a little mid-month inspiration at the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog. The theme this month is "Present, not Perfect".  We want you to step out of your comfort zone a bit and try something you wouldn't normally try.  For me this month, I've been experimenting with different types of watercolors.  

One of our sponsors this month is Pickled Potpourri Designs.  I used one of the 4 images in the Botanical Minis set and watercolor crayons to create this:

I only had 12 watercolor crayons.  They were Neocolor II, from Caran D'ache.  I really liked how easily they blended and dissolved with water.  I put them on a palette, then used a fairly dry paint brush to paint the image.   The sentiment is also from Pickled Potpourri

I'm really enjoying the theme, 'Present, not Perfect' this month.  It has given me license to try new things and not worry if they don't turn out as great as I'd like them to.  How else to we grow, if we don't challenge ourselves to new adventures?  I hope you'll join us at Path of Positivity Challenge Blog, and try something new, too.  You have until June 4.
