For May’s theme in the Happy Mail Craftalong I decided to play with watercolors I am 100% a beginner but decided to try my hand at an actual watercolor picture (instead of a masterboard/background). So here they are…
I painted a bunch of flowers in sets of three then added colored dots all around. I chose the best ones and used markers to draw the stamen details (and I’m going to pretend I didn’t have to look up “flower anatomy” for that fact… ok, I did look it up… you caught me…). Then I cut them apart and trimmed them to size. I gave them a “frame” but it didn’t feel finished so I used some masterboard pieces to make “tape”.
And the lot of them (I think 14? …13?)
Bonus fact! the masterboard tape was made from an envelope I received in the craftalong
And this set was just the beginning… I encouraged myself to try another set using watercolors and stamps
Thanks for looking
