Default TLC898 - Watercolor Roses - 5/9/2022

Happy Monday! Don't worry, you opened the right challenge This month, I have switched with Jean as we are each traveling on our weeks...

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend - mine was filled with mom time and it was wonderful! In honor of Mother's Day, or Spring, or proms, or anything that makes you think of roses really, I wanted to try a watercolor rose technique. I found a tutorial that shows how to do simple Roses with Watercolors. Though the tutorial is based on Bible journaling, this technique is perfect for cards too.



After playing around with this, here are a few tips....
- Any watercolor should work even distress inks watered down. I grabbed a cheap set of metallic water colors I got from Michaels for $5. Just remember you need a lot of more concentrated color to begin with.
- Grab a bigger piece of watercolor paper if you have it. That way you can practice a few times and just keep going on the sheet. Then you can cut it down and make a few cards with the result.
- She mentions in the tutorial that she dips her paint brush in the water between certain layers. I had a hard time managing the water flow when I did this so I recommend either skipping that step at first or making sure to tap the excess water off on the side of your jar.
- Have fun and don't get too worked up over the process. I found that even the roses I didn't love, didn't look too bad after I added the leaved and sentiments were great cover ups

I can't wait to see what you create!

Way out of my comfort zone, but enjoyable. The results reminded me of Roses in Winter, a set I still often use. Thanks, Lyn.
