Learn to let your watercolor paint flow and do what it wants to by creating a water path for it to follow. This is great for beginners and can be done with ANY watercolor paint even in inexpensive paper. Plus this design makes an adorable note-card. This is a fun technique to practice and it will help you relax and get used to what your paints want to do naturally!
