Christmas tree watercolor before sparkle added

I painted my tree using a 1/2 inch flat brush. I need to remember to pick that brush up more often. 😊 I really like the purple and blue together.

Once again, I put my new gold and silver pens to the test…

painted cards with little ink touches

Oh, I love these new pens. The gold ink on the Christmas tree adds the perfect little touch.

I’m not sure how many cards I will get painted this year but I’ve decided to not stress about it. I am going to enjoy the process and do what I can.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!

Watercolor floral cut outs

I have some watercolor flowers and leaves to share with you today. These floral cut outs are always so much fun to make.

Happy Thursday, friends!Β πŸ’š

 

watercolor flowers and leaves

It started with a simple watercolor painting,Β  some big shapes and favorite colors.

For my cut outs I like to use Canson Mix Media paper (98 lb.)Β  The smooth white paper is perfect for ink sketching and cutting with scissors.

A little detail is added with ink andΒ  then some outlining of each shape.

 

watercolor flowers and leaves cut out

I leave a little white paper around my cut out shapes. I’m not sure what I am going to do with these beauties. Maybe I’ll make a card or I could paint a few more and frame a bouquet of them. I’ll have to think about it but that might make a nice gift.

These cut outs remind me of paper dolls that I used to love playing with as child.Β Β πŸ˜€

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.Β  Keep playing and having fun.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Watercolor bookmarks

I made bookmarks last weekend for couple of very special women in my family. Before wrapping them up I thought I would share them with you.

Happy Thursday, friends! 😊

It started with aΒ 6 x 9 inch painting of transparent flowers.

watercolor painting for bookmarks

After it dried, I cut my painting in half and trimmed each bookmark to a nice size.

Then I punched a hole in the top of each bookmark and added a bright green ribbon.

Oh I love that color, it looks so pretty with my painted bookmarks.Β πŸ’š

I enjoyed making these gifts and hope they will be loved.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on.

Happy Painting!
