Watercoloured DragonfliesPosted: June 19, 2012 | |
To create my dragonfly panel I used watercolour paper and watercolour pencils. Although I own water colour paints I have recently been using my pencils to create some “paint’ when I just want to do a small card-sized project. I colour hard on a scrap of paper with the colour I want, dip my brush in water and add some to the colouring to create a small amount of water colour paint.
I wet the panel above randomly with water then dropped both purple and blue paint randomly on the wet paper. It blended and ran as I moved the paper. The spots were created using salt, paint drops and pencil sharpenings. The dragonflies were stamped in Memento Teal Zeal & Elderberry and the edge of the panel darkened by running the Elderberry ink pad along it.
Thanks for dropping by today; I’ll be back tomorrow with the One Layer Wednesday challenge.
