Default MIX325: Watercolor Whimsy (4/19/2019)

Title: Watercolor Whimsy
Hostess: peeps321(Polly)
Keyword: MIX325

We all have so many options when it comes to applying color to our projects. I decided I needed to use my watercolor mediums more often than I do and perhaps in a more creative way. So I got out my brushos and grabbed a stencil to see what I could come up with. I sprinkled the powdered watercolor medium over my stencil and then instead of spritzing with water I wiped the color in using a baby wipe…it worked and I got a fun background.

Challenge: Use a watercolor medium (brushos, watercolor crayons, watercolor paints) and apply them to your project using a stencil.

Here are a couple of ideas to inspire you:

Painting a design directly through a stencil:
http://www.thecraftersworkshop.com/b...ercolor-part2/


Jill Foster using a negative portion of a stencil:
Flights of Fancy - Simon Says Stamp Blog


Using the stencil as a mask (note-skip ahead to about 2min 30 of the video for instructions):



Loll Thompson’s stenciling with brushos:


Remember to use two or more mediums on your card. See a list of suggested materials here.

Make sure to put MIX325 in the keyword section.

Fun idea, Polly. The card in Loll's video looks beautiful. I might have a go with gelatos. I presume they count, and they're definitely my most under-used water-soluble medium.

MIX325 New Mercies

Still presuming Gelatos count as when I looked them up they're defined as water-soluble. I had blue and green fingers all day yesterday from a Brusho session on Wednesday evening . But I'll definitely try them with stencils soon.

I just watched the Brusho Watercolor and Stencils video adn laughed out loud at her experiment. She crumpled up one on Whisper White and said, "itls going to paper craft heaven"!!! Cracked me up! I love her accent!

Thanks for the fun challenge. I have not thought about using my stencils like this. I can't wait to give it a try!

May still finish my first attempt, but here's the spin-off that resulted from lots of leftover Brusho pigment. Very fun, Polly. Thanks so much!

I had to finish some other projects and then make room to try this. It took a couple of tries, but I have two panels and they are drying. Now to figure out how to use them!
Oh, and I got very inky. I also used baby wipe to clean up mess, then got the idea to do the baby wipe technique, so now I have two more baby wipe backgrounds, too.
