Watercolor Blog Hog!

Hello friends!  TGIF!!!  

We are so excited to be hopping along with our friends at Ellen Hutson today.  We are featuring projects using our NEW Liquid Watercolors and are SO excited to show them off in action.  Avery Elle's liquid watercolors come in 10 gorgeous shades that can be used on their own or easily mixed together to create custom colors.  For an intense shade use the watercolors straight out of the bottle.  If you want lighter shades, just add various amounts of water to get the color you desire.  The possibilities are endless.  Be sure to check out all of the details of the hop as well as how to be entered to win one of TWO FULL SETS of our Avery Elle Liquid Watercolors over on the Ellen Hutson Classroom Blog.  

Let's get to the hop shall we?  

I used the Avery Elle Liquid Watercolors to create the under the sea background.  I sprayed the background watercolor paper with water and added drops of the liquid watercolors (Aquamarine, Sea Glass, and Mint to Be) directly to the wet paper.  I was able to swirl and blend the colors by just tilting and rotating the paper. I let the panel dry and repeated the process to create additional depth- no brushes required! 

I stamped images from the Bubbles and Mermaids stamp sets onto white paper and colored them with Copic Markers.  Does this scene remind you of a famous Little Mermaid? 

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. A few clear gems add a finishing touch. 

Supplies:
Liquid Watercolors (Mint to Be, Aquamarine, Sea Glass)

That's all for me today! I hope you are inspired to make these awesome watercolors "A Part of Your World!"

You are off to Carly Tee Minner next.

A full list of the hop participants is below.


Thanks for stopping by!
