First, I cut out a bunch of circles, using a drinking glass for tracing a circle shape.
I made a template for the petals.
Then I cut out the petals.
Then after I put the flower together, I decided that those little pom-pom centers need some red.
I thougth they’d give a nice, soft, blushy effect.
It all started with a big accident.
As I was painting little dabs of paint on the poms-poms, I dribbled some of the watercolor onto the tissue petals.
Hmmm…. at first I thought I’d toss that flower, but then as it dried, I noticed the stain gave the flower a subtle, natural look.
Since I’m such a bold gal (and I love to get side-tracked), I decided to paint all of the flowers. Then when they dried, I got even more side-tracked.
