Easy Watercolor Typography


I started off by making only one of these watercolor typography art pieces, but then I got instantly hooked.  I made three of them so far and I am sharing the tutorial of how I made them using my Silhouette Curio over on the Make It & Love It blog.  Find the full tutorial HERE!

3d Watercolor Paper Peony Flowers

Handmade Watercolor Paper Flowers Tutorial

I work with the 10-11 year old girls in my church in Activity Days.   We threw a Mother Daughter Breakfast and I was in charge of coming up with some decorating ideas for the tables.  We had some centerpieces for the tables but I also wanted to have a little something on the food table.  Using my Silhouette, I cut out some white cardstock paper peony petals.

Watercolor Easter Egg Hunt Invitation + Printable

St. Patrick’s Day Book Page Art

Book Page St. Patrick's Day Art designed by Lisa Richards

I am at it again, making book page art.  This time I did a St. Patrick’s day key.  I sketched the key out with my Silhouette Sketch pens first and then painted it with watercolors.  I am totally digging water colors right now.  One of the things I really liked about this book page art compared to my last  one  is that I filled in the rest of the book page with white chalk.  It really makes the key pop.  You can see the full tutorial on the Silhouette blog.

Thanks for stopping by friends!
