Water color Flowers with Bonus Rose



I have created the tutorial ready for the March Swirlydoos kit..Water Color flowers with a bonus Watercolor Rose just thrown in the mix. These are super simple easy!! While I was browsing through some of my older scrapbook magazines for some inspiration, I came across my old copy of 2006 Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame Book...and there was my new inspiration for flowers... Honorable Mention Christa Hayden. She made these beautiful flowers from rice paper...I thought, why not coffee filters like I have been using...And break out my wonderful set of watercolors....This is what I came up with...These were done with one Sizzix die in 2 sizes.....I hope you like them...Color varieties are endless with watercolors!! The tutorial will show layered flowers also. When I was done, the flowers reminded me of flowers in my aunt Sylvia's garden in Puerto Rico.. So I was going to name them Flores Tropicales, but Water Color Flowers is just a basic, you take off from there..They can be loud and colorful or soft with a hint of pastel...The sky is the limit, now go forth and paint a garden!!
