Woo Hoo it’s Watercolor Weekend time again! This weekend I wanted to do an Autumn Farm Scene. I am just loving doing fall scenes with apples, pumpkins and mums.
Here are the details of my project. I started off on a piece of Canson XL WC Paper Pad cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. I inked the Veggie Cart up with African Violet, stamped it off and re-inked it with Sepia. I pulled the color out of the lines and added Brown to the wooden buckets.
I used the new Dogs set to add a sleeping puppy underneath the Cart. I used Sepia and Brown on the palette to give him a little bit of color. I added the tiny grass in Olive Green around the card and the puppy along with a bit of Sepia. Using the palette, I created a sun with Brilliant Yellow and a hint of a sky with the Steel Blue.
I masked off the left basket and inked the apples (to use them as pumpkins), using the stamp positioner I stamped the apples into the bucket. I masked the apples and stamped them again. I used the Sepia to add some lines to the apples. I added stems to the small pumpkins with Olive Green. I used the watercolor palette to paint on the Brilliant Yellow as the first layer and then added Orange and Terra Cotta, leaving some of the Yellow for a highlight.
I followed the same process of masking with the right hand basket of apples. I added some Olive Green and English Red (so they look like Macintosh –my fav). I added a tree in the background using the new Branches set. I added some fall leaves using the flower from the Garden Wagon Mini Set.
To create the card, I cut a mat from some Gina K Designs Cranberry Tart cardstock and mounted it to a base card of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
