The card making season 2020 has come to an end – at least when it comes to cards for family occasions. The last card I needed to make was a birthday card for my mum. I decided to continue with the watercolour adventure for this final project. I’ve been enjoying playing with watercolours and I already have a few ideas for future watercolour crafts – I finally feel like I understand how to work with watercolours a bit more.
A while ago, I decided to let my long-forgotten watercolours shine and spent an afternoon playing with them. I created a few simple bookmarks that day and was left with some scraps of watercolour paper which I didn’t want to go to waste. So, without a real plan, I made a few little tags. They’re really tiny – 3.5x5cm – but I think they’d look okay used as gift tags, perhaps?
I came across some watercolour painting tutorials channel on YouTube the other day and instantly thought how weird it was that I still hadn’t tried that popular technique! Feeling inspired, the next day I bought a set of watercolours and some paper.
My little pictures are far from masterpiece level of art, but I had a lot of fun painting them anyway! Seeing colours spread in the water, living their own lives and creating that nice kind of gradient is extremely relaxing. I can’t believe it took me so long to get some watercolours and try them out but I definitely have lots of joyful hours with watercolour painting ahead of me, I just need to watch or read some tutorials and get the hang of it ^^
