Color Shine {Watercolor Background}

Sunday, March 2, 2014


A little more watercolor today.





Recently I watched this Video By Yana.
She created the most beautiful backgrounds!
I couldn't wait to try it with my Color Shine spray.
I used a FC Big Brush Pen to fill in the letters of
 my sentiment with some coordinating color.


I can't wait to try this technique again!
Thanks for stopping by.

  19. I tried the technique and I was able to replicate your inspirational video's results, but yours looks less splotchy and more flowy. Did you lay your colors down all at the same time? They are stunning!!!
