I have a special project to share with you today.
Happy Sunday, friends! 💚
After I watched this SkillShare class by Theodora Gould, Watercolour Cut outs, I knew I found the perfect gift.
It started with painting some leaves and flowers, loose and simple.
I tried to keep each piece about the same size.
A few more little paintings. I made sure to add light and dark areas in each.
Then a little more fun, adding ink detail….
Hello little flowers! 😄
Just some simple outlining as well as a few details here and there.
I love how the ink brings them to life.
I wasn’t sure how many pieces I would need and which would look best together. I painted two sheets to be sure I had enough to work with.
The next step was to cut each piece out leaving a little white paper around the edges. I took my time making sure to not damage the little pieces.
I can’t tell you how happy these little pieces made me… 💜
On a fresh piece of 6 x 9 inch watercolor paper, I sketched a little vase and then made a slice in the paper to slide the leaves and flowers into.
Once I was happy with the arrangement, I flipped over the card and taped the pieces down.
I glued a fresh piece of paper to the back to clean things up and cover up the taped area.
To finish things off I added a few little embellishments. This little card made my heart sing, I just love how it turned out and was so excited to hand deliver it. 🌸🌿
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for following along and sharing this creative journey with me.
Until next time, share a smile and shine on my friends!
