It's a word flower tutorial for today's 31 Crafty Flowers in 31 Days

 Here's what you need to get started:
 Gather supplies

-Watercolor Paper
-Watercolor Pencils
-Brush & water
-paper, ribbons, bakers twine & flowers (optional - to create card)

Step One

Step one-sketch

Lightly sketch out your design on watercolor paper.

Step Two

 Step two-write words in shape
Using the watercolor pencils, write the words you want to use on the lines of your flower.  I used the scripture,

"The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the Word of our Lord stands forever." -Is 40:8

You could also write poetry, someone's name or just a little love note!

Step Three

Step three-brush with water

Step two-write words in shape2

With a damp brush go over the watercolor pencil lines to smudge them a little and create a painted look. 

Once the flower is dry you can go in and erase the pencil sketch lines, but I kind of liked how this looked so I left it.

Step Four


Cut out your flower and mount it on patterned paper for a handmade card. 

I attached ribbon and silk flowers to some bakery twine to decorate the spine of the card.

Have Fun!

Grace & Peace,

"He sent Me to give them flowers in place of their sorrow, olive oil in place of tears, and joyous praise in place of broken hearts. They will be called "Trees of Justice," planted by the LORD to honor his name."
-Isaiah 61:3
