Water Colour Corn

Hello Peeps,

I am so excited to have found "The Frugal Crafter", Lindsay Weirich's blog. She gives daily video tutorials in all kinds of crafts, including water colour painting. You can find the water colour corn tutorial here. I love Lindsay's fun, almost zany, personality. Her videos are a pleasure to watch and very easy to follow.
A close-up of the painting
Simon Says Wednesday challenge this week is "Tag It". That inspired me to paint a single ear of corn and make it into a tag. I tied it with a specialty yarn that resembles corn silk.
The finished card
I appreciate you stopping by and your lovely comments are like little rays of sunshine in my day.

Blessing hugs,
Teresa
