Watercolor leaves for your ladybug
Did you ever catch bugs as a child, and keep them in little jars? I remember doing that – fireflies, ladybugs….we’d poke holes in the lids, tuck leaves in and add a few drops of water in hopes of keeping the little creatures alive. Alas, I eventually learned that these critters were never meant to live in jars! But – with stamps, I can return to the joy of watching a ladybug crawl along a leaf – but by painting it! Watch the video to see some simple tips to create graphic leaves to feed your Honey Bee Little Ladies! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
You could make endless cards with these little buggies….so many diffferent leaves and angles. Add a light blue wash for a sky background before painting the leaves and change it up even more!
