Hello and Welcome friend! I am Darlene Brink; a creative entrepreneur living on a flower filled acreage on the Canadian Prairies. I love to paint watercolor art for products such as home goods, jewelry and paper products available in my store online.
My lifelong love of sewing, crafting, gardening and painting are nourished by encouraging and inspiring others. My career in psychology and a love for helping others fuels my desire to teach others how to set and accomplish their creative goals.
What has started as my own art discovery journey has now turned into a desire to help others achieve their Big Dream Goal.
I have compiled my best resources which focus on where to start and how to build a plan. My goal is help you narrow down your goal into attainable, bite sized pieces. Celebrating successes and challenging fears are a huge part of the journey.
Access Free Resources
I’ve saved my best artwork for you; watercolor infused cards, task lists, bookmarks, wall art and wrapping paper so with one click you can have any or all of the Free Printables ready to download print in seconds.
Even though I share a lot of freebies, I held back for years in starting to paint because I feared failure. As creatives, you and I can be held back due to negative thinking. It might look like comparing your ability to others or not having the confidence to pursue your creative talent and put it out into the world.
But what if you could change that? I have just the freebie for you – The FREE 5 Day Challenge. Watch the short video clip below.

Surface Pattern Design
I want to invite you into my newest venture that combines my love for vintage decor, flowers, photography and art. This labor of love has been Surface Pattern Design. Think of your favorite patterns and prints on home decor, clothing, home goods, wall paper and wrapping paper. This is my creative way to create what I desire to see in the world.
The theme for my first collection, Blooming and Becoming comes from my personal journey of accomplishing my dream of being a surface pattern designer. Growth and enjoying the journey are themes that are woven into my pattern design names. I can see my patterns on fabric, paper goods and wallpaper.
With encouragement of others at the forefront of Paper Rose, I have created inspiring products to celebrate where you are now and challenge you to keep heading towards your dream.
I have recently added a new line of Peony Earrings from this Blooming & Becoming Collection to the shop, please check them out!
I’ve taken my favorite watercolor art and added it to the most used products for you and your lifestyle. Picture yourself sipping your morning coffee from Peony Mug, ready to tackle the work ahead.
I have taken this same Peony watercolor and made these signature, one of a kind Peony Earrings.
Take time daily to use a watercolor journal along with the Journal Prompts to start measuring true success.
Don’t forget to grab your FREE Believe & Achieve Workbook before you go! And if you are a fellow pinner, pin this image for later. Thank you!
Thank you for taking the time to stop in. Blessings from my house to yours,
