Sharing my Speed Watercolor Painting Paint & Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist project.
I decided to play with watercoloring because of a Facebook post that one of my friends shared. She was working on a journal page swap and watercolored. Not only did she watercolor she also doodled on the page to give it another step of texture.
Looking around in my stash of art supplies I realized I didn’t have watercolor paints. Well not paints I wanted to use for this project. Watercolor paints are just paints watered down, so I thought I’ll just use acrylic paint.
Armed with watercolor paper, water and acrylic paint it was time to begin. Deciding that my watercolor paper should be mounted while I paint I used a large ceramic tile. Masking tape was used to keep the paper in place. What I should have used was a low tack tape, but I was using what I had on hand.
Since I knew I wanted shimmer on this painting I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. Glimmer Mist adds just a touch of sparkle, it makes me smile.
The circle in the middle was from a glass candle holder that I dipped into black acrylic paint. The saying is a stamp from Stampin Up. I used Black Stazon Ink to stamp the sentiment.
Because I used the wrong kind of tape to hold down my paper, when I removed it, the paper tore. To hide the damage I created a mat using cardstock, a ruler and a kraft knife.
Framed art brings joy to me. That is why I used a small five by seven frame to display this piece of watercolor.
This Speed Watercolor Painting Paint & Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist has now given me a bug. More watercolor paintings were made and I know more are to come.
This was a fun medium to work with today. Have you tried working with Watercolors? Let me know your thoughts.
