Watercolor Wash Technique Technique Page

This is a fun technique I thought I would share with you.  It allows you to move colors around and even reuse what is leftover so you don't have a lot of waste.  

I took a piece of Shimmery card stock and misted it with water.  I put a few drops of inkers on a plastic sandwich bag and then with a wet paint brush I moved the colors around.  Then I set the card stock on top and when I removed it this is what I saw.  I LOVED it. 

You can even take another piece of sprayed card stock and put it on top of the bag again, without adding any more ink and see what you get.  It's quick and easy and super fun to do!  And it's SO pretty. I LOVE the bold colors.  I used the primary colors here, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Perfect Plum.  Next time I make it I will omit the Pumpkin Pie since the red and yellow will combine to make an orange color.  As long as you don't move the colors around too much you won't get mud and it will always be pretty!  Experiment and have fun with it!

This is another installment in set #5 of my technique pages.  These pages are designed for you to teach classes with.  The CD's come with the instructions on a page ready for you to print out (5-3/4" x 5-3/4").  Your customers would just do the technique, cut it to fit the page and also decorate the page.  A photo of the finished page is also included.  And you could have your customers make a card using the technique too.  That way they not only get a page to add to their collection of techniques but a finished card too!  You can purchase the CD's here in my web store.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
