Kitchen Watercolors and free download
Last week I got together with a group of my friends and we had a "craft day" which was a blast! I decided that I had to craft something just for me and not to be sold in my shop! I feel like I craft a lot, but my home doesn't usually reap the benefits (though sometimes I do decorate my own home with things and then just take them down if and when it sales. Is that weird?).
I decided to make these silhouetted images of food and kitchen items to hang in a row in my kitchen. The way I made them was, I cut watercolor paper into 5x7 pieces. Then, I cut out all of the images I wanted out of regular white cardstock, in the middle of a 5x7 rectangle. I took each image and lightly spray glued it to the water color paper, and used the cardstock as a kind of mask. The watercolor did blled into the cardstock in a few places, but mostly i was just careful not to not paint up to the VERY edge.
After it had dried for a few minutes, I peeled off the cardstock mask and voila! nice silhouetted images!
I am offering the whisk as a free download!
