Watercolor Circles- Expressive Faces or Flower Doodles

I haven’t posted much lately because I’ve been focusing on other things– I’m in charge of the cookies for our Girl Scout cookie sales and that is like a part-time job! Also, I’ve been getting ready for my presentation at NAEA. If you are going to the NAEA conference, let me know.. I would love to meet up with new people! I have a lot of fun art journaling exercises prepared, including this one- using watercolor circles as a launching point for creative doodling.

Here are two sheets you can use to print out and practice on. Or, of course, you can make your own watercolor circles (which I think is the most fun part!). Download the PDF version here: Sheet One. and here: Sheet Two

What can you do with watercolor circles? Take your Sharpie markers, colored pencils and paint markers and turn the circles into flowers!

Check out the full blog post about turning watercolor circles into flowers!

What else can you turn these circles into? You can make expressive faces!

These flowers and faces are fun to cut out and put on art journaling collage pages. If you try this, show me pictures! I’d love to see what you create.
