Watercoloring backgrounds

I wanted to create a bunch of backgrounds for christmas cards and instead of doing it panel by panel, I decided to tape a whole sheet of water color paper (Canson XL) to my board and then painting. I used a kids set of watercolors (borrowed my daughters *smile*) started painting.

I first wet the paper to get the colors flowing and then went in with two different blues. I left a white area in the middle, mostly by chance but thought it might be able to double like snow...
First layer.

Second and third layer now dry, starting to add Perfect pearls.

Finished piece now also with added white paint as snow fall.

I liked this way of doing backgrounds, will most definitely be doing that again.
