Magnolia Watercolor Painting

I painted along with Lindsay, The Frugal Crafter when she did a Magnolia Watercolor Painting   on February 25th. I did look at the image on Paint My Photo. They are such pretty blossoms. I used one of my little watercolor journals that I made for my cruise to the Bahama's last year. I painted in the car and a couple of times on board. For my journals I cut watercolor paper to 5.50x7.50 and used my Bind It All to punch and bind them together on the O-wires. I also cut a couple of pieces of chip board for the covers and decorated them. I added a pocket to the inside cover of each for tickets and other goodies that I might pick up.
I enjoyed painting along with Lindsay and some day I will learn not to be so heavy handed with the color. That is going to be something I will have to work on. I don't think it turned out to bad for a beginner. I tend to be heavy on the colors no matter what media I use. I do love the look of watercolor, so I will keep on trying and maybe some day I will get that lovely transparent look. For now, I will settle for, it looks like what it is supposed to be and you can actually tell what it is. LOL
