I found a really good tutorial for creating tree branches with watercolour paints and had to give it a try.
This takes a very small amount of paint, a brush and a straw! Firstly add a blob of watercolour paint to the edge of a piece of watercolour cardstock. Using the straw, blow the paint across the paper creating the branches. Change direction to make the paint move around. Repeat this several times down the edge of the paper.
Once you are happy with the branches take a small paintbrush and add in the leaves. I also added a few little bluebirds for some interest.
I'm quite pleased with my first attempt and intend to try a few more 'trees'.
Hope you like it. TTFN Jude xx
