Hi friends! I think the most requested tutorial from the paintings I shared from vacation (next to the birch tree) was the fall leaf so today I’ll show you how to paint it!
Watch the tutorial and follow along with whatever supplies you have. I will post a supply list below as well.
Supplies (links to Hallmark Scrapbook and Simon Says Stamp)
- Watercolor Paint (any watercolor is fine!) I used Cotman but the Prima sets are really nice and quite a bit cheaper, You can use either the Classics or Tropical sets to mix up the colors you need for this.
- Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Pencils Hallmark Scrapbook has them for $19.99 (regular $39.99) Simon Says Stamp also has them but they are not on sale
- Watercolor greeting cards or Watercolor paper
- Watercolor brushes (small #2-#2 round and a #4-#6 round)
- White Gel Pen (HS) or SSS
*If the above products are out of stock You can find a great selection of more watercolor supplies at Simon Says Stamp. I find Simon Says Stamp has the BEST selection BUT Hallmark Scrapbook has better prices but they sell out fast! They are both wonderful & amazing companies though:)
* The above links are affiliate links, by clicking my link and purchasing anything on the site I receive a small portion of the sale (it doesn’t cost you extra) and it helps me keep these tutorials free. I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who used my affiliate link to purchase classes at Craftsy this weekend during their 50% Labor Day sale. By shopping via my affiliate links you help me create the tutorials you want to see and I don’t have to worry if they will get enough views to be financially viable. I just feel very grateful to have such an amazing community and I wanted to make sure you knew that! Big hugs guys! BTW you still have today to grab 50% off classes at Craftsy if you like. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
