Straw Flowers

We needed another quick project to work on after we rubbed off the rubber cement from our water color abstracts. 

We used short lengths of straws to blow pools of watercolor. 

The next week, we looked at photos of flowers and then drew them with black pen over the watercolor splats.

I think some of them would make beautiful fabric!


These are small- only about 4inches x7 1/2 inches. Small scale is a good way to try out a technique, and in this case, a good way to avoid getting light-headed too! 


Make it a wonderful day!
