Hello friends. I’m so happy it’s Friday! Hubby had been away all week and it’s so nice to have him home. It’s also March 1st and my daddy’s birthday so I’m looking forward to celebrating him this weekend.
Today I’m sharing a super whimsical project. This painted paper rose modern wreath was fun to make and I think it would be so perfect for Spring or to display in a little girl’s room or nursery. Unfortunately, my little girl is no longer that little so I’ll just have to enjoy it myself.
The other day I got a package from my friends at DecoArt containing their new colors for this year. I was so excited to see what they had come up with because I was part of the initial brainstorming session and it’s so fun to see the end result.
The paint has a nice matte finish and as usual, the best coverage and pigmentation. I love the new colors but I especially like the Vintage Pink and the Mermaid Tail. Just so pretty.
I made a little video for you so you can see how easy it is to paint these imperfectly perfect roses. Which brings me to my next question:
Do you prefer video tutorials or picture tutorials or both? I find that picture tutorials initially take more time because of the constant stopping and going. But video tutorials are easy because I just set up my camera and film but they take longer to edit. But I’ll definitely take you suggestions/preference. 🙂
I love how it turned out and I love that it was fun and therapeutic to make as well.
Let me know what you think below.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a beautiful weekend.

Personally, I like the written out tutorial. When it is written out, I can print it out and do the project as I have time. With the video, this is not possible.
Also, not all of us are as talented as you in the drawing and painting areas. Have you ever considered putting the pictures you paint, with your instructions, so they can be printed out and project made? I love this wreath, but know that I can’t make one even remotely close to the pictute, so I will not be making one.re
Thanks for listening!

I LOVE all of your work. Thank you for sharing so generously with us!! I vote for the video tutorials but find both to be useful. Thanks again!!

I much prefer the written tutorial with photos to explain what’s happening in the photos. One reason is because if I don’t understand what’s going on in the photo or the text I can easily go back over it as many times as I need to. For instance, in your video tutorial in this post the action was too speeded up so if I really wanted to see the brush strokes you did for the roses I couldn’t. I also didn’t see any explanation about what the ring you put the roses on was. I couldn’t tell by looking at it. Anyway, that’s my two cents regarding tutorials! It’s a cute wreath, by the way.

I just love all that you create! Thank you first of all for sharing – I’m sure it’s a lot of work to do both, so I greatly appreciate it! That being said… I find both helpful… I’m a visual learner and I like to see it happening, but I find written instructions helpful just in case I have missed a key part while watching! 😘
As always, so beautiful! I learn better with video tutorials…it’s a brain thing, I guess. Thank you for taking time to teach those of us who have an interest in creating!
I love your videos, but also appreciate the written directions (e.g., what type of paper did you use, etc.)
I absolutely love this. To the people that think they can’t paint, just try ti. Roses are one of the easiest flowers and these instructions are spot-on. Yourls might look different but so do roses. Give it a try.
Anyway, I just love this and can’t wait to try it. Give me paint, paper an d paintbrushes and I’m good to go.
Thank you for sharing.
So gorgeous. I am just starting to play with watercolour flowers, and what an amazing way to display them. Pinning. I just love this idea.

It looks stunning but unfortunately I don’t know how to paint like you so…it’s kind of vision thing to me.
I absolutely love this idea, and I am split on video/picture tutorials. I am happy with either.
Question for you: what kind of paper did you use to paint on?
Thank you for your amazing creativity!

I think it’s necessary to experiment many times to draw like you, it’s not easy, but what you do looks good.
I adore the fresh hues, but Vintage Pink and Mermaid Tail are my favorites. Just quite beautiful.
