Product Focus – Watercolours with Denise

Hello!!

We have  a small series of Product Focus blog posts starting from today for you.

To start us off we have the very talented Denise. Here is what Denise has been up to this month.
”As a special add-on to this month’s kit, Color Swatch, Christine has procured these adorable pan watercolor kits. The colors are rich and beautiful”.
I used them on many of my layouts this month. On this one I cut and glued pieces of paper onto my background. After it was dry I spread some gesso onto the page to give it a base for the water colors.
All you need to start is some paint brushes, a cup or mason jar filled with clean water and a little spritzer of water.
Add a little water to your brush and add to your pan of color. Let it sit for a minute to make the color stronger. I then randomly add color to my background.
I then spritzed the water onto the paint to help to spread it around. I lifted up my paper to create drips.
I then took one of my plastic stamping blocks and added some paint to it.
I then stamped the watercolor onto my background. This gives it a natural, random effect. I saw this technique used byMummka or Magda Bolinska and that it was really clever.

With these simple steps you can create a beautiful, messy watercolor effect on your background.

I hope this inspires you today.
In every February ‘Color Swatch’ main kit you will be receiving a piece of watercolour paper. I’m sure some of you will be delighted, but we are sure some of you may be slightly stumped as to what to do with this white piece of paper too. As always we want you to make the most out of your Cocoa Daisy Kits, so a few of us will be sharing with you over the next few days, how we used our piece of watercolour paper. – See more at: https://www.cocoadaisy.com/?p=13124#sthash.AixVphna.dpuf

    Just added these to my kit – it’s been years since I painted but felt a magnetic draw to this palette 😉
