Water brushes are so fun to use! Well, mostly because I’m just lazy and with these guys, I don’t have to keep dipping my brush in water! haha. But it’s not just that, these brushes make colour blending really easy 🙂 And this is coming from a non-paint-expert.
How it works is really simple – you unlock the tip of the brush and fill the hollow compartment with water, lock it back then proceed to dip your brush into paint. When you decide you’re bored of that paint colour and wanna blend it with another – just go ahead dip your tip into it and paint on! If you don’t wanna ‘contaminate’ your paint bottles/ paint set, you can use a pallet for your paint like I do.
Also, if you’re
lazy practical like me, you just need to give the middle of your water brush (the water compartment) a little squeeze, squeezing some water out to kinda ‘clean’ your brush tip when you wanna change colours completely. Note that when using this brush. playing with the water consistency also gives you a different look.
Above are two verses I painted with my water brush 🙂 I used 3 colours here – turquoise, purple and dark blue. There’s definitely room for improvement, but I suppose it’s pretty alright for a 2 a.m. painting session 😉 So for those who have been hesitating to try, hesitate no more! Grab yourself a water brush from your nearby stationary store and paint away!
A friend sent this verse to me yesterday and it just reminded me once again of how fulfilled life is when I “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness”.
Seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness as in – prioritizing the things of God over the things of man. Seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness as in – not placing the things of this world higher than they ought to be; not holding on to them so tightly as though they will last.
With placing God and His will as utmost priority comes a change in us towards things – such as the way we choose to speak, the use of our finances, our time management, the weight of our decisions… basically our whole outlook in life. Everything starts to revolve around the one truth we know – the one truth we want the world to know: The Gospel. And when all of that happens, worry goes! (as Matthew 6 addresses) because our mind no longer focuses on the here and now, but on eternity. And as we get our priorities right, God provides for us His children.
This is a reminder for me – as I reflect back, it’s seems that when I’ve got that order right: kingdom of God > this world , that’s when I find that life is most meaningful and when I find the most fulfillment and true satisfaction in Christ.
I would like to encourage my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, whichever point you may be in life, to keep running this race holding on to this promise – that as you fix your eyes on Jesus and let Him be the center, “all these things shall be added unto you” – because our God is faithful and He never fails.
