Inspiration Wednesday 11

Watercolor and water-based dyes are really big in paper crafting and art right now, so my latest Inspiration Wednesday project proved to be extremely fun and useful.

iwed11It can be done with just about any watercolor type of medium mixed with acrylic paint. I used gelatos and white acrylic paint. The black lines were from a fude pen, but a lot of my brush markers could have rendered the same effect. I mixed a little bit of white paint with glazing medium and added it when the paints were almost dry (before I added the black lines) to soften the colors a bit, but it looked perfectly fine without.

I had so much fun doing this that I can see myself playing with this technique a lot as I find new ways to use it. 🙂
