Foolproof "Watercolor"

This is it. The absolute easiest watercolor project technique you will ever use. The results are stunning. The technique is super simple. The picture below is the piece I used for inspiration. I saw an ad for a local interior design company in a magazine and just snapped a picture of it. There will be link below to the full tutorial and supply list. 



My first project:
It is completely stunning in person!

The gold metallic cord worked well with the gold embossing.


My second project:
This was a piece I had trimmed and was going to throw away. I realized after looking it over that it would make a great gift tag. 


My final project:
I love the dreamy quality of this piece and think it would make a great Christmas card. 


Click here for the full pdf tutorial and supply list. Be gentle with me, it's the first tutorial I've ever done this way! Don't hesitate to email me with any questions you may have. Just know that I work somewhat long hours at my day job and it may be the next day before I get back to you with an answer.

  13. What a cool technique! All those layers really have a great effect when you put them all together! I definitely neglect my neutral colors, it might be time to pull them out and give them some love: I feel totally inspired! Thank you for the directions, too. The tutorial was really helpful.

  14. Wow! You did an awesome job with your tutorial and all 3 of your projects. So cool how you achieved so much texture detail from the baby wipes and stamps. By the end of step #7, the background looked like it would also make a cool cityscape. Thanks for sharing!
