SUPPLIES FOR THIS PROJECT: I deliberately kept the supply list simple and inexpensive for this project. However, if you want to use the same paint and paper I’m using here they are:
Watercolors: Yarka Semi-Moist Watercolors 8 Pan Set https://www.dickblick.com/items/00336-1029/
Paper: Arches 300 lb cold press watercolor paper https://www.dickblick.com/items/10011-1012/
Other than that, I use a 3″ flat brush, a large round, and blue painter’s tape
This Week's Bible Story
For this week we have a Bible story, Jesus Loves the Children. This was originally featured on one of our DVDs but is no longer available for sale. But you can enjoy it here. 🙂
Note: This video was featured on the original edition of our DVD, The Crossmaker. However it was removed in a later printing. But there’s still a lot of great content on The Crossmaker, so take some time to check it out if you don’t already have it.
Downloadable Coloring Pages
This week’s coloring pages are a house (easy) and a flower garden (a bit more complex, but still easy.). Have fun!
