I didn't have a face ready this morning and I knew I would only have about 5 minutes to make one and I couln't find a single watercolor paint here at home, it's all at work Ii think...

.so here's Margaret Sykes. She's in 6th grade and wants to be a floral designer when she grows up. Her grandma wants to go to college with her when she goes, and grandma wants to be an architect!

What do you want to be when you grow up.... I of course want to design tea packages.

Anyway, this is just kids markers on good watercolor paper then I wet it with a brush. I should have done the outlines in permanent marker so they wouldn't bleed as well. And I think i'd be fun to cover it all with bright loud colored pencil. Matbe I'll try that ...


  1. Love the way this came out...all wild and free :D XXX

  2. Hi Andrea, I just got done looking at all of your faces...my most favorite is the paynes grey mandala and Whisper...I love her and her mom.
    When I grow up, I wanna be...happy, Happy, HAPPY!

  3. What fabulous colors! amazing!

  4. You have a way with kids markers...you go girl. When I grow up I want to be like Tasha Tudor. But I am working on that part.

  6. oh wow!!! this is super cool!!! love it!!!

  7. I love Margaret! I'd love to meet her grandmother, too! I'm 55 and going to college to be a nurse, so we would have a lot in common. You really do have a way with kid's Crayola markers! (I think it would be fun to design tea packages, too!)

  8. To have 'nothing' handy this is pretty amazing!

  9. Hey, Margaret ! Whoi wouldn't want to play with flowers all day ?

    Have a good one !

  10. Wow, now I want to go buy some markers.
