Default TLC764 ~ Watercolor Splotches ~ 10/14/19

Hi Friends! Happy Monday!


It is my turn again to challenge you and I found a fun little watercolor technique for you. It reminds my of the rorschach test - what do you see in the water color splotch haha! You may see birds, trees, flowers,etc... Whatever you see in the splotch, just grab your outline pen (I used a Copic Multiliner) and go with it!!


I found this super fun video that inspired my challenge.




I used Distress Oxides which created a softer, more muted look, but regular Distress Inks or other water based inks (or watercolors) would work too.


I hope you are inspired to play along with the challenge! I can't wait to see what you create with your splotches.


Hugs,
Lyn




Here are the Details for today's challenge:

I altered the method a bit.....hope you approve. I had "ready made" splotch scraps from my watercolor projects. Thanks.

THANK YOU

For such a small amount of watercoloring I sure made a large mess, I mean artistic statement, on my table!
