just add water...


This weekend I'm testing out my new/old water-colors I have gotten on Etsy:) To be  honest - I have not touched water colors in 10 years... but these awesome tin boxes are forcing me to come out of water color retirement:)
I'll show you on Monday if anything good comes out.
HAVE A FUN WEEKEND!

Those vintage tins are really cool. Even if the watercolors are too old to be very workable, the illustrations and fonts on the tin are nice for display!
