Welcome to this week’s Art Impressions watercolor weekend. In the wake of all the tragedies happening around our country I wanted to create a scene that felt peaceful. I hope it helps to give you some peace as well. I wish that everyone could spread a little kindness, it goes such a long way. I thought I would use the Beauty is all around you sentiment for this project. It is so true and it’s a little reminder to be thankful for every day and enjoy your “Happy Place”.
Onto the details of my project.
First, I started by stamping the tree trunks from the New Fir Trees Set with Sepia. I then added the Foliage from the branches in the Fir Trees Set with Pine Green. I softened them Fir’s by adding water with my brush.
I added the tiny grass from the Foliage Set to the bottoms of the trees and used my palette to add some additional green to the ground. I used the Teeny Tiny Flowers from the Flower Set with African Violet to add a touch of color.
Using my palette, I added some mountains in the background using Olive Green, Pine Green and Sepia. I then added Salvia, Manganese and Blue to create the look of water. I also used the same colors to create clouds in the sky. Once it was dry I stamped the bench from the New Benches Set using Mocha.
I added the “Beauty is all around you” from the WC Sentiments set using Black Versamark Ink. The panel is 3.75×5 which is adhered to a 4×5.25 panel of Dark Chocolate cardstock from Gina K Designs. I placed the entire panel on an Asparagus card base from Gina K Designs.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a crafty day! God Bless!
