My Take On Water Coloring Techniques

I had so much fun playing with you all at Craft Night last night!  Remember to mark your calendars for our next one. March 18th! 

Here is a recap for reference and for those that couldn't make it.

The Swoosh and Flick:  Grab some paint in your brush and start at one end and flick your wrist at the end to leave the brush strokes at the end.

Ombre:  A super easy way to add a background to your project.  Grab some paint and just stroke back and forth going off the edge, getting lighter as you go up the page.

Smoosh and Blend:  Wet your water color paper just a little bit.  Then grab some paint and smoosh onto your project.  After you get the desired paint smooshes.  Take a clean lightly wet brush and blend the colors, lightening the edges.

Smoosh and Blend with Splatters:  Ink up your brush then lightly tap on your finger to create splatters on your project.

You can order all these supplies on my website.  Happy water coloring everyone!
