DIY: Watercolor Art


I did this quick 5 minute DIY on Saturday. After the color crush that I put together last week I was really craving some pink around my space. This tutorial is easy and basically just a larger version of the valentines that I made last February, so if you want the full instrustions you can check it out there!


What you'll need:
White Crayon
Print to trace (optional)
Tape
Paper
Watercolors 


Here's how easy it is....
1. Draw out your phrase or picture with the white crayon
2. Paint over with water color
3. Let dry.

Easiest DIY ever? Probably.  I'm thinking that this might be a neat project to do with a larger print. It would probably take a lot of time and patience but I think the outcome could really be worth it. For now, I'll just take my little 8x10.

  11. I’m having a fortnight meeting in USA so my stress reliever is reading some blogs, but it’s quite difficult for me to spend or waste my time in simple blogs or non sense writings then somehow I read your works It’s so confusing because I love your enthusiasm on this subject so I comment on to admire your style. It happens that I’m curious about reupholstery services Singapore, I think you should try to check it out!
