Camper #5

Wow, sharing with you has been fun! Two more campers left to fill…time fly’s by too fast. Hope you Enjoy!!!!

Cone of Flowers

I actually surprised my own self as I created this project. I LOVE the way it turned out. I will tell you though… forming the cone was the most challenging for me. I knew I could watercolor it and be perfectly happy with the results. But, I wanted it to have some kind of 3-D dimension to it. I considered looking for a stencil and using modeling paste. But I wasn’t sure if you would be able to replicate what I did. That’s when the idea of braiding the paper came to my mind.

You have some options, like cutting out brown paper shaped like a cone and add a few dark lines to it. The sky is the limit on what you can do with this…Have FUN and share what you achieve.
