Watercolor Cut-Outs

Watercolor Fruit and Feathers Cut-Outs: growcreativeblog

I'm experimenting with new ways to re-use old watercolor paintings.  It's kind of scary to cut up something I spent so much time working on, but after a while I get over that feeling and just have fun!

It's better to use these beauties rather than have them collect dust in my art cupboard.

What would you use these for?  I'm thinking birthday cards!

  1. I made magnets several years ago using clear rocks and scrapbooking paper and they're still on my fridge. I can see some of these - especially the small round ones - making really cute magnets.

  2. Beautiful! I'd use them as tags, scrapbooking or decorate the mood board! Thank you for the fantastic idea! I'd definitely try this, this summer :)

    1. I love your ideas too- especially the tags.

  3. I almost always cut my paintings up! So doing, I feel like I have more elements to work with and more control over my finished piece. By layering the pieces, the added quality of depth and dimension comes into play... I either end up with a much smaller finished piece or a much larger finished piece. Keep up the fun!
    Peace.
