How About a Hand-Painted Mother’s Day Card?

It’s so easy anyone can do it! This pretty design is painted in less than 10 steps. You can find the instructions in my Learn to Paint with Lindsay! Sweet Pea painting packet.

And then all you do is adhere it to a card front, or maybe in a frame! Mom still likes to keep all of our artwork doesn’t she? If you like this watercolor painting project be sure to give these tutorials at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff a look:

Wishy-Washy Watercolors? No Way!

Happy Friday folks! Looks like rain in New England this weekend (we need it!) so it is a nice excuse to stay inside and paint! One of my favorite tricks for making my watercolors nice and bright is to use complimentary colors next to each other like I did here with red and green in my new Learn To Paint with Lindsay kit: Chinese Lanterns:

 

As with all of my beginner kits the cost is $3 and you get about 20 step by step photos and instructions to paint this. No previous painting experience is necessary. I’ll show you how fun and easy watercolor painting can be!

Watercolor Basics {video}

First off I have to say “Thank You!” To all of the folks who purchase my first ever painting kit! I am so honored that you will allow me to teach you. I have been busy today designing another beginner painting packet that I hope you will enjoy: Learn To Paint Pussy Willows, isn’t it so springy? Well, it’s what spring looks like here in Maine, brown, gray and white:

I decided to make a video explaining the basic watercolor supplies and a few basic techniques. I’m sorry it is so long, when I looked at the clock during filming I nearly fell over, it is almost a half an hour…as my husband would say, watching it take a commitment LOL! So you might want to grab a beverage and get comfy 😛

Here is the basic supply list I mentioned in the video, you can print it out and take it to the store with you.

I still have the Introductory special on the Learn to Paint Birch Trees project going on ($1) so if you are curious about this series of lessons you can try for a buck, not much of a risk if you ask me 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Learn to Paint for $1!

Howdy folks! I am so excited to share some news today! I am now offering painting packets at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff. I love to paint and I am happy to share what I know with you. My first offering is a lovely birch tree painting that anyone can paint in an afternoon:

You get a multi-page PDF file with 20 step by step photos and simple, clear instructions. You can print it out or follow along on your computer screen. In addition you get  a hi-res jpg of the finished piece so you can print it out and study it while you paint. Normally my painting kits will run between $3-$5 but since I want everyone to try this I am running an introductory special so you can snag it for $1.

If you do give it a try I’d love to know what you think! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
