Made It // painted wood block

The other day at the shop I felt like painting something just for fun. 
I think my favorite part about bringing out the paints is mixing colors to get a color I want. For example, that teal is an evergreen paint mixed with lots of white paint. It's one of my favorite colors to create. Another color I love to create is that coral paint that matches my favorite nail polish color perfectly.
That was a tangerine paint mixed with lots of white. 
I had some wood blocks so I decided painting some of those would be fun. 
I used the method I used from a past Make It. Super simple, but with pretty results. 
As you can see I really loved using the coral and the gold! 
I also ended up painting some wood magnets for the boutique.

  8. Very cute! I sometimes get in moods where I want to paint but don't want to actually work on a painting, you know? But I could do craft painting! For some reason, this never occurs to me.
