Playing with Paint

I have been having fun playing with paint this week. It started with a video by Donna Downey. In one video she used something called Gouache (gwash) paint. It's a watercolor paint that's opaque. I fount a 24 tube pack of paint at Walmart and started playing :)

These two were both done using the gouache paint. I love the bold colors.
This one was done with regular watercolor.
And finally, This one was done with acrylic paint.
This will be my first time entering their challenges.
I already entered the last card in the Ippity challenge to use paint.
It is a sale weekend at Unity in honor of Mr. Unity's birthday. Itty bitty's are by one get one free. All the details are on the blog
Maria Levine can be your chick if you need some Ippity!
