Watercolor Your World

Hiya! Welcome to the Watercolor Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh...love their store!


My watercolor entry uses the Hero Arts White/Cream paper flowers, lots of Tombow marker (in blues, purple and pink) as watercolor, and some Gelato metallics. Fun!


 1. Color on a craft sheet with metallic gelatos. Spritz with water.


  
2. Place your (7 Dots Domestic Goddess) paper facedown on the wet surface and press the paper so it picks up the colors.

3. Color with Tombow markers on an acrylic block, spritz with water and lay the Hero Arts paper flowers on top so they pick up the color.

4. Adhere everything together after it all dries. Add some bling and your title...and voila!

I added a little gelato to the photo background (of me and my daughter), because I didn't like the wall color and it looked kinda artsy, so I also added flowers to our hair too. I love that the paper already has different images and colors. It adds a lot of depth without a lot of time and effort.


And Yep! I have blog candy!
