I've been messing around with watercolors lately. They are so versatile and fun! As I was looking through one of my Cardmaker magazines to find more ideas for watercolors, I came across this card that used acrylics together with watercolors! I had seen that page before (and loved it), but this time, I was determined to actually give it a try, and I'm so glad I did!
The card tutorial in my magazine used white acrylic paint, and so that's what I'm using here. There are so many possibilities with just white, so imagine how many more there are with all the other colors!
I also want to point out that the lizard paper on these cards is from a project I did in art class in 2013 I think? I copied it onto watercolor paper, and viola, interesting patterned paper to watercolor on! You could to this with any pattern. I think it'd be fun to doodle with just a black sharpie all over a piece of paper, and then I could copy it onto watercolor paper as many times as I want in the future!
I decided to put together a tutorial (no surprise there) with two separate cards I made. Here's the first card (my favoritest).
Here is the second! Same size, same technique, different colors.
Here are assorted other cards I made with watercolors + acrylics.
The Thinking Closet's slogan, and I also think of red rain boots and yellow rain jackets and little kids splashing around in puddles. Specifically puddles in our driveway. That's just what I think of. What do you think of when you see this corner?
What will you make? Have I inspired you to experiment with watercolors and acrylics? I'd love to see your own creations!
