I was browsing around for something or on Pinterest..(which I never am..lol)..and found a cute watercolor that mentioned a watercolor watch..the cute art work led to a site and a video..
I wanted to make it then and there.
That was late yesterday..
Today's snowglobe pretty morning turned into a mess of freezing rain and rain.
so I retreated to the craft room..
I knew I had a very vintage piece of Velcro..from when my daughters were small and you know how old they are;)
I wondered during the night if it was long enough.
I also wondered what I would use..and thought of a small flip top container that was pink that came in a $ store travel necessity bag.
So many items could and would be perfect.Just opening my girlie drawer of make up and things..little round blush compacts would be ideal too..and of course more beautiful ornate things..
so I was stuck w/ a pink box and an old cream sort of velcro..most probably discolored white..
I looked at my fabrics and what would go w/ pink..to hide the ugly Velcro..then I cut the fabric to glue onto the strap.
I made a little round label..w/ World Labels template..and a digital download of a flower from and We lived happily ever after.
A craft punch..and glued the label to the see through pink container..filled it w/ small samples of watercolor..they suggest you paint the lid white to mix your colors..
A water brush..small journal..good to go:)

How nice was that artist/photographer and daughter to share this?
Hope you find it fun too.
If you are going to add fabric.. make sure you lift the watch to tuck the fabric under w/ glue.
My wrist is so small..I needed much less..and still cut some..you have to leave one part..unfabric..ed..for the 2 velcros to join.
Once that container is stuck on the Velcro..it is STUCK..don't even think of moving it;)
I did..and it did not work.But luckily the measurement divas were with me..and all was well.
Let the paints dry..perfectly before closing up shop:)/Watch.
PS forgive the tint in my fotos..it's as dark as anything w/ the rain..I went to a window..but you know..
I wish I would have had a different Velcro and case..etc..to do it a little better..but it was a nice starting point.
I know Susan would not mind me stealing her line for this;)
Below.. what my peony garden can look like when it's not under snow and ice..it's hiding you see..like the paints in the watch:)
