June 2020 Newsletter

Live in the Sunshine, swim in the sea, drink in the wild air~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hello and welcome to the vert first “Creative Hoots” Newsletter! I am so excited about starting a Inspiring, Creative, and Fun publication. My thought process is to share projects and ideas I am working on; tips and tricks; what is inspiring me and offer printables for you to enjoy too! I feel this newsletter will be continuously evolving and hope you enjoy the ride with me!

Here we are in June with all the feelings of summer along with Father’s Day and my birthday month! Here in Texas, we have already had almost temperatures in the 90’s. The beginning of summer is all grins and carefree days but as we approach the end of July it becomes unbearably hot, dry and just plain miserable and I’m waiting for cooler days.

I recently joined a art club from Tricia Robinson called the God Made Girl Club and I am loving it. She talked about giving yourself permission to be YOU! So I have decided it is time to add color EVERYWHERE! Projects I haven’t painted, I’m going to paint and things I have been too ‘scared’ to paint, I’m going to paint. I’m so excited to have my colorful light shine.

My Permission Slip

First Colorful project I have completed is adding color to the front porch, I purchased these fun pin wheels from Hobby Lobby. Painted the pots with Ocean Blue Chalk Paint and spray painted the white river rocks, pink, yellow and blue.

Painted pots with Pinwheels!

I’m in progress of finishing up this train case painted in candy colors. I’ll be having a video series soon on steps on how to paint your own.

Summertime Nostalgia~ New Video Series will be coming this month. Starting on June 8-June 14, 2020. I think being at home so much over this quarantine time and finding a box full of childhood photos has made me remember how fun and carefree past Summers were. Here is the schedule:

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Do you remember the homemade popsicles that you could make with Koolaid? Another Nostalgic memory. I painted an assortment of popsicles with watercolor and acrylic paints to use however you like. I made a banner using beads for the coffee bar

and a fun little banner for my planner

As part of this Newsletter, I wanted to have a section where i show a tip or a favorite thing I am loving at the moment. Right Now I am LOVING these Prima Watercolors “The Classics” The colors are so vibrant and they have a PINK! Perfect!

Thanks for stopping in on the very first Creative Hoots Newsletter! Be sure to mark your calendars for next weeks’ Summer Nostalgic Documentation! XO, Rebecca

    Rebecca so glad you decided to create a newsletter. Was so interesting and can feel the passion you have for your artwork. I really liked the pots with the pinwheels. That was a good idea.
