Watercolor Colouring Book



I discovered a wonderful colouring book from Kirsty Rice called Summer Cutting Garden.  (I think there are/will be the other seasons too.)  It's on good thick paper, single sided and beautifully illustrated.  I had a play with my Daniel Smith watercolours with no aim in mind.  When the painting was finished (why didn't a take a photo?!) I thought I could turn it into a layout, so I started fussy cutting...



After quite some time with my scissors and then a craft knife for the inner areas my wreath was ready.


After adding a little watercolour to the background I popped the wreath up on foam pads for dimension.


I added loads of sequins - I kept wondering if it was too many but I couldn't stop!!


I added a few strips of journalling over one of the flowers.

Highly recommend this book if you like playing with watercolours!

Thanks for stopping by.
