Watch the Video Introduction!

What You Will Learn in this Class

All Levels Welcome!


In this class, you will learn how to paint whimsical wreaths in watercolor. We'll paint several holiday-themed die-cut embellishments to create three beautiful cards And as a bonus, I'll walk you through adapting the painting techniques to create a 5x7 wreath painting for framing, gift-giving, and more. 

I will be sharing how to use Viviva watercolor sheets, a dye-based watercolor along with discussing the differences between dye-based, watercolor, pans, and tubes. We'll take a comprehensive look at all forms of watercolor. Watch the introduction video for all the details. 

We'll splash color around and take a deeper dive into JOYFilled watercolor techniques using hot press watercolor paper:

  • Whimsical Leafery techniques to build a beautiful wreath.
  • Watercolor Glazing
  • Hot Press Paper and What Makes it So Magical. Tee hee!
  • Differences between Watercolor Ink, Pans, Tubes, and Viviva Colorsheets
  • Card Design Principles using Die Cut Embellishments
  • Splattering Paint for Texture

These techniques will help us create beautiful textures and build depth of color in your wreath cards.

I’ll demystify and walk you through each technique step-by-step before we paint the final project together. 

Video content delivered in short, technique-based lessons

Each video lesson breaks down the watercolor painting techniques into smaller chunks giving you the ability to follow along using the practice handout. Then, we'll put it all together and create beautiful cards. 

What You'll Make:

Together, we will walk through all of the techniques, paint whimsical wreaths and embellishments for the cards, AND as a bonus, we'll paint a larger wreath painting together.
