Easy Mixed Media Trees
Another super duper easy lesson - could be Fall or Winter...
Using 9x12 white construction paper and watercolors, make a cool background. Color washes, wet on wet color, splatter, wet water drops, salt techniques...have fun with the background. I did one in warm and one in cool colors.
I waited until they dried completely - the next day. And then I created a tree two different ways.
With this tree I just used black watercolor and a straw. I painted a trunk and then blew the rest of the paint to create the branches.
With this tree I just used a black sharpie.
Easy and pretty cool looking if I do say so myself.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
