For today's projects I continued my exploration of the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers. Thanks for stopping by and let me know your favorite way to watercolor.
My exploration into Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers continues. If you’ve been following along with my posts this month, I’ve been using the Altenew watercolor brush markers to add color and detail to the amazing releases from Altenew.
Each Craft Your Life kit has been amazing and the Never Stop Dreaming kit has this big beautiful floral that I decided to focus on. The image was heat embossed with antique gold embossing powder onto Altenew watercolor paper. The embossing makes little chambers for the ink to settle. Having the chambers means that there is less flow of the paint but it also means the detailed image lines are preserved.
When I watercolor, I add water to the image and then drop in ink from at least two analogous colors. One lighter to cover the image and one darker for detail. The result is an ethereal look with variation throughout the flower and leaves. Painting blue around the image helps it to stand out from the background.
Did you know there’s a subscription program? Yes that’s right you can get one of these amazing kits every month chock full of products that will keep you crafting all month long.
