My little girl is headed off to preschool this year! She’s only going two days a week for a few hours, but it’s the first step towards being a big girl and we have been doing lots of celebrating around the house. In honor of school attendees around the country, I am sharing this fun A is for Apple watercolor print with you all.

What supplies do I need to make an A is for Apple watercolor picture?
How do I paint an A is for Apple watercolor picture?
I always start watercolor paintings with a few light pencil sketches and then I slowly fill in my color.
After completing the main apple watercolor graphic, I attempted to paint in the center text. It was an epic fail. The wording was off centered, the F of ‘for’ and the L of ‘apple’ just happened to overlap into a hot mess. No good.
How to fix mess ups when watercoloring :
Now what? I definitely was not about to repaint the entire thing. And then I remembered our scanner to the rescue! If you are on the hunt for a small, quick and easy to use scanner, this is the one for you. We’ve had the ScanSnap for a few years and had no regrets.
We originally got the Scansnap when our daughter was born and I was working from home 20 hours a week, as a landscape architect. I was constantly sketching designs and needing to quickly get them emailed to the people at my office.
The scanner automatically detects paper sizes, has auto color detection, auto cropping and scans double sided. It’s a little pricy but if you want dependable, small and compact then this guy is your ticket.
Using photoshop, I was able to downsize the text and easily made it fit in the space.
AND I’m sharing both prints with you all. I made an option with yellow triangles and an option with gray triangles.
