This week I’m going to show you how I created these fun project life cards using watercolours.
I decided to try my hand at some watercolor techniques I have seen in videos and make some PL 3×4 journaling cards.
This is what I used:
I tried 2 different ways. The first was using Gelato’s.
I rubbed the Gelatos over the paper and then added water and used my fingers to rub it in.
You could also use a brush but I found my fingers easier. I wanted an ombre effect so I started heavy and lightened it up as I went down the paper.
Then to finish it off I added a sticker from the Crate Paper Notes and Things collection.
For the second attempt I used an old set of watercolor paints that were my sons.
I did the same ombre technique and started heavier at the top then added more water to the color as I moved down the paper.
I really love this look and it was really easy to do. You can see the difference between the gelatos and the regular watercolors they are more shimmery.
I hope you give this a try it was really quite easy and I love the effect of the obmre which is easy to do with watercolors.
