My project uses the Crocus Flowers and Courage sentiment – in loose loose watercolor! If you’ve struggled with loose painting, I’ve got some encouragement in the video that might shake you from being so tight!

Paint a loose background – then if you paint out of the lines it really won’t matter at all. It’ll just be some extra pretty splatter!

If you need something different to shake you up creatively, try a different format for a card – long skinny, 5×7, something other than your usual!
