April showers bring... May watercolor flowers! This project is a win for any artist, no matter where you are on your watercolor journey. And it's a great way to build your skills in manipulating tints and shades. (Believe it or not, this gorgeous composition only requires four basic colors!)
You can’t grow greens without having the right gear. And sure, some are no-brainers (where would your garden be without a shovel? Or sturdy gloves?). But there are a handful of other tools you might not have thought of that will instantly raise your gardening game and make life so much easier.
Eager gardeners, this one's for you: even if it's too early to plant outdoors, you can still get started prepping your plants for potting with seed starters. And watching seedlings first sprout up from the soil is so rewarding. This kit is made from objects you probably already have around the house — just add seeds!
If you can't decide between painting and drawing, ask yourself: why choose? This mixed-media project combines the best of watercolors and colored pencils for the prettiest blooms.
Discover the magic of stumpwork as you stitch wired slips (embroidered leaves built over a wire shape on a separate hoop). Afterwards, learn to cut the stitched wired slips from the hoop, then insert the dimensional wire leaves securely into the main embroidery to complete the design.
