WOW and THANK YOU!!! Is all I can say to y’all for the wonderful support and excitement in last week’s blog hop!!
Thank you so much for sharing your ideas, challenges, inspirations, and thoughtful insights about your relationships with nature! I feel like I got to know each of you a little better and I love that best!
In Draw Yourself Back to Nature week 1 we explore how to paint leaves using the wet on wet painting technique.
And I am so glad y’all enjoyed meeting Dawn, Seemi, and Rob!! They are so great aren’t they?!! I find each of them very inspiring in such complimentary ways. Don’t you wish you’d had them as teachers as a child? I know I do!! Luckily we can have them as guides now!
Now this is what I call a monochromatic color scheme!!! Learn all about color schemes and how to apply them in Connecting with Color.
So I know everyone is excitedly awaiting the big news of who the drawing winners are…… but let me share one more giant nature inspired thank you to everyone for participating in the hop and making it such a meaningful experience!
So, out of curiosity, how were the winners drawn? I carefully went through all the blog posts here and on each of the hoppers blogs. Then I complied all the commenters names. To the people who commented on posts everyday last week, I gave a number. Then, I entered the total number of 5 day commenters into Random.org and it chose the individual numbers. Voila we have drawing winners!
Learn to creatively chronicle seasonal changes of nature’s rainbow in your nature journal!!!
For me, Gloriosa lily reds mean it’s summer!
