This is already the last week of my year-long project! To conclude, I chose a technique I learned at Magenta, that was also taught in a project with my DT colleage Souri78 during our Art du scrapbooking weekend crop: Smooch watercolor.
Here is my example.
You will need:
- Kraft cardstock (chipboard or cereal box)
- White, artist-grade pencil (Prismacolor recommended)
- U.S. Art Quest Watercolor palette
- Water brush
- Smooch Inks
- On the cardstock, draw random lines or designs on the entire surface, using the white pencil.
- Place Smooch ink drops here and there all over the surface, grouping them by 3, 4, or 5.
- Without waiting for the ink to dry (you can work on one section at a time, depending on the size of the project), use the water brush to wet the chosen color in the watercolor palette. Then, pick up some color and smooch it randomly on the background. The Smooch ink that hasn’t dried will mix and create further color effects. You can add as few or as many watercolors as you wish until the desired effect is reached. Also, the white pencil designs will resist and show through the color.
- Let dry and finish the card.
Now, IT’S YOUR TURN!
