Default WCW082 {Easy Christmas Snowflakes} December 22, 2021

Hi, And Welcome to this weeks edition of Watercolor Wednesday the challenge.
I know exactly how short time is and one thing I have found since I started making time to paint
fairly frequently is I am breathing a little easier after a go around even when things do not go as smoothly as they do for the artists who share these how-to video's with us.
(insert a smiley rolling its eyes here since I have never been able to do that my self)
This week we are taking a look at one titled Easy Christmas Snowflakes. ( and she mentions using cheap paper so, I thought OK I have some of that... her cheap paper is still Cotton paper ha ha) and I will tell you that really is something I have found to make a real difference is using cotton paper over the partially cotton paper.

You can find this challenge tutorial here on You Tube

This week's Key word is : WCW082
The gallery for this challenge can be seen here Gallery at Splitcoaststampers
My Sample for this can be seen here.

Additional mug shots of the process will be on the blog.

This will take a lot more practice for me - drawing snowflakes on paper with a pencil, actually pretty easy - painting them with a brush on WC paper - a WHOLE Different skill level altogether - lol

Here is my try at painting snowflakes: WCW082 Hand drawn Snowflakes by bubblestx4 at Splitcoaststampers

I certainly agree with Linda's statement above but I would also call on a ruler and protractor!

Here is my effort
