Hello creative friends,
We have around 30 fabulous watercolour cards already linked up for this month's challenge. There is still time to dust out your distress inks / gelato / paints / watercolour pencil, or whatever watercolour medium you fancy and join the fun. I hope you haven't missed out on the fabulous techniques the DT shared this month.
I for one couldn't get enough of paint and decided to experiment a little more:
Acrylic paint + texture paste = thicker brush strokes. I didn't even mix the paint and paste completely. Load a flat brush with the above and just go swipe, swipe, swipe. Acrylic dries pretty quickly, so the colours wont disappear into each other but give a beautiful blended depth.
I got a little more bold after this and mixed paint with sand texture this time. Three big, bold strokes and a little bit of stamping and this card was ready.
Here is a panel without and mediums added : you can see the paint doesn't have much thickness.
You can pre-order texture paste, sand texture or any other products on your wish list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy creating, see you all soon!
