Steps to create a watercolour painting, beginning with the silhouette sketch pens

  1. Use your Silhouette plus your silhouette sketch pens to create the mason jar drawing (provided below), on a small piece of watercolour paper (you can get inexpensive pieces at Michaels). Check out this Mason Jar sketch tutorial for some great tips.
  2. Gather your supplies- watercolour paint in blue, green, and brown (quality doesn’t matter, just Crayola is fine), May Arts burlap twine, and red pom-pom ribbon, and Scrapbook Adhesive dotz, two paintbrushes, and a needle.
  3. I have no painting skills so my technique is probably very poor, but you can refer to this “How to Approach Watercolour” if you’d like some actual tips. I used one brush to paint the jar with water, and then slowly added blue with the other, brushing more water over areas that I wanted lighter. Then I used a fine tip brush to fill the branches in with brown.
  4. Cut pom-poms from the May Arts ribbon and attach the berries using Scrapbook Adhesive dotz.
  5. Use a needle to poke a hole on either side of the rim of the Mason. Thread the burlap string through and tie in a bow.
  6. Add your watercolour painting to a frame, and you have yourself a beautiful piece of Holiday Art, perfect for a gift or to spruce up your home!
