Disclaimer: I have a professional relationship with Kunin Felt and received free product from them.
I loved combining my two favorite art mediums-watercolors and felt- to create this colorful artwork. It’s sure to brighten up your home!
- 9″ x 12″ craft cuts of Kunin Classicfelt™: Yellow, Gold, Apple Green
- 12” x 18” craft cuts of Kunin Premiumfelt™: Lagoon, Candy Pink
- Flower shaped die and die cutting machine
- Watercolor paper
- Watercolor paint and brushes
- Craft glue
- Shadow Box Frame
- Using a die cut machine and flower dies cut flower shapes from felt. No dies? That’s okay! Just cut your own flowers freehand! You can find a tutorial for handmaking felt flowers here.
- Cut a piece of watercolor paper to fit the shadow box frame you are using to frame your artwork.
- Arrange the felt flower shapes on the watercolor paper until you find an arrangement you like. Do not glue them down! Once you have an arrangement you like, lightly sketch leaves around the flowers. Remove the flowers from the watercolor paper. TIP:If you don’t think you’ll remember the placement of the flowers, take a photo to reference later.
- Using watercolors or other medium of your choice (acrylics or markers work too!), color in the leaves you drew. I also added a few random splashes of watercolor to the paper for an artistic look.
- Allow the watercolor paint to dry completely, then glue the flowers in place.
- Allow the glue to dry and insert the artwork into the shadow box frame.
