About This Class

In this class, I want to show you how to use Photoshop to create beautiful watercolor wreaths by collaging your hand painted watercolor elements.

We’ll cover how to make your own pattern bank of watercolor elements, then I’ll show you how to use your pattern bank to build an unlimited amount of watercolor wreaths in whatever color, size, and layout you want.

You can use the wreaths you create in this class for personal projects like greeting cards or desktop backgrounds, or you can sell your wreaths as digital downloads or use them on print on demand sites like Society 6, Spoonflower, Zazzle, and Red Bubble.

Once you finish this class, you'll be able to create tons of beautiful wreaths using your own hand painted watercolor elements!

Note: This class is great for anyone who is somewhat familiar with Photoshop.  If you're a beginner, you may want to start with my first class, which explains all of the tools I use in this class: Beginner Class
