Would ya look at that? I'm blogging at night. That's weird. Usually, I like to get-my-blog-on in the morning. BUT. Short-and-sweet-disclaimer: I do not claim to be an expert, a teacher, or an art prodigy when it comes to any of these tiplets or media. So, in the true spirit of CREATING and letting go and being loose - leave your mark. Okay. Let's get a little wishy-washy. You need a few things to get started here. The Watercolour Pencils. Alright - rip a page out of your sketchbook (you don't have to!) Throw down some colours. Spray it. NOTE from COMMENTS: I just let it air dry. Look at how beautiful that is. This is a scan of the finished product. A couple of months back I put out an ALL-CALL for starfish... and I got about 35 starfish photos in less that 24 hours. Alright. Have a beautiful night.
Watercolor CardsIf you have been loving the watercolor and ombre trend recently, you are going to LOVE this amazing DIY Sarah is bringing us today! She is sharing a sweet way to ask your bridesmaids if they will stand by your side on your wedding day. This DIY is so adorable and super easy! It is even more awesome because this technique can be applied to so many elements in your wedding (hello, fabulous escort cards and favor tags!) It’s DIY time again, lovely readers! This time I have a super “artsy” project for you! Materials Watercolor paper cut into 9″x6.25″ rectangles, folded into cards(size A6: 4.5″x6.25″), 1 per bridesmaidWatercolor paints (the cheap Crayola one will work just fine!) Helpful hints: Using a bone folder to fold the paper is very helpful, since watercolor paper tends to be thicker than printer or scrapbooking paper. Step 1: Cut all of the paper (watercolor and scrapbook) to the sizes indicated above. Share:
