Mini Album – Watercolor Stamping Technique

I love finding ways to incorporate old things into my projects. I recently found an old and stained linen table cloth for a couple of dollars at the thrift store, and knew it would come in handy for a future project. It was the perfect surface for an easy watercolor stamp technique.

Hand cut different sizes of “rough” circles using the tulle and sheer nylon ribbons. Carefully shape the circles by holding above a flame, so that the edges curl.

Sew the circles over the large flower in a random manner to create a dimensional flower. Add mini beads to the center. Add the finished mini-canvas to the project of your choice.
