Live, Travel, Adventure, Bless, and Don't Be Sorry.

Hi and welcome to Drawn to DIY!

Last week, I posted a printable using the Zig Kuretake Clean Color brushes

Today, I'm sharing a quote using a spotter brush. 

I like to experiment with different brushes, as you may have noticed. I started with the Zigs and the Tombows mainly because you don't really have to worry about how much paint or water you need. Color is consistent which is why I would recommend this for beginners to get a feel of the strokes and hand movements first. 

Now, I'm using actual paint brushes. This week's experiment involves a spotter brush, specifically the Royal & Langnickel 10/0, and I gotta say I'm really loving this at the moment. The brush is fine and tiny so your strokes are more defined and easy to control. I also used Koi Sakura watercolors for this printable and I love how the rich blue color fades from dark to light and vice versa. Note that you can't easily get the same effect with the other brushes.

Now about the quote...

Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don't be sorry. 

The simplest sayings often have the most impact. This is why I love this quote from the famous Beat Generation writer, Jack Kerouac. It has a "seize the day" / "live in the now" feel to it without being too cliche. I mean I myself had dreams of traveling the world after graduation. I thought of living off a backpack, immersing myself in different cultures, tasting different cuisines, and experiencing everything the world has to offer. While that never pushed through, I feel like this quote can remind me / you that it's never too late to do anything that makes you feel alive. 

So here is your free printable. Probably good for recent-graduates but definitely great for anyone who wants to live fully and creatively.
