Simple Activity: Paint Rose Petals

Fiona from Fiona Kate showed me how to do this. She’s so very clever and has this ability to make simple activities so beautiful.  It’s about being able to be fun with anything, even with fallen rose petals from the garden.  Spring is upon us, and this is a wonderful way to celebrate.  Tint a few empty jars, buy a few roses and when they have had their day to shine, take a small moment to paint the remnants, to capture their beauty.  This is how.

Painting Rose Petals

1. On a piece of watercolour paper, paint rose petal shapes, using the loose petals as a guide. Take note of different shapes, and the gradient/different colours. 

2. Using a coloured pencil, draw in a little detail on them. See the pink petal below and the peach petal above.

3. Allow to dry.

Only 5 –7 mintues in total to paint something so simple, yet so gorgeous! These would look amazing on the front of a card or even framed.
