Hi friends! Each year I like to make kissing balls to hang on my porch. As I await for the floral foam to be delivered (I usually get the wet floral foam disks at Dollar Tree but they were out! I have a tutorial here if you are interested) I thought I might as well paint a simple one from memory. I painted this on a watercolor greeting card but it would work well small on a gift tag too. If you want more watercolor card and tag ideas for Christmas check out my Hand-painted Holiday online mini class! Now, onto the video!
Supplies (may contain affiliate links)
- Watercolors: olive/sap green, Viridian hue/pthalo green, Prussian blue, Crimson red. I used the new Paul Rubens student watercolors and I will share a review in a couple of days.
- Watercolor greeting card
- 8 round brush and 1/2″ flat brush
- Other: cotton swab (Qtip)
Today is such a gorgeous day, I just got back from walking the dog and it is so bright and sunny so I think we will get the porch decorated (except for the kissing balls) while the weather is nice. We managed to get the tree up and inside of the house decorated on Tuesday while everyone was snowed in so it is looking pretty festive around here! I hope you are having a great day and til next time happy painting!
