Hooray for Color and Mixed Media with Briana

Hello Readers!

I have been doing some experimenting and playing this week. How about you?

Would you like to play along with me?

Here’s something fun you might like to try.

Supplies Used:

Step 1:

Get your watercolor paper, stencil, texture paste, a plastic card, and a baby wipe ready.

Apply molding paste or texture paste with a plastic card or palette knife. Smooth the paste over and through the Shooting Stars stencil (or stencil of your choice). It feels like you are frosting a cake, as you smooth out the paste.

Step 2:

Wipe stencil with a baby wipe right away and/or rinse under running water to remove the paste.

Step 3:

Let paste on watercolor paper dry completely. Check after 10 minutes or so. If the paste does not stick to your finger when you touch it, it’s dry.

Step 4:

Get your Distress Crayons and Gelatos ready to go, as well as a jar of water and a paintbrush.

Begin to apply colors of your choice, directly onto the dried, textured watercolor paper.

I made a couple of discoveries here. The Gelatos and Distress Crayons blend together nicely.

Also, I find it so fun to apply water to water-soluble, colorful art supplies! It’s magical!

Step 5:

Continue adding color and water to your heart’s content.

Step 6:

Add a fun border if you’d like!

Enjoy your art!

Thanks for playing along with me today.

Sending you well wishes, lots of colorful playtime, and other good stuff.

All of my best,

Briana of OrangeSpiralArts.com
