Altenew March 2019 Watercolor Brush Markers Release Hop (+Giveaway)

by | Mar 21, 2019 | Altenew, Backgrounds, Blog, Classes, Giveaway, Happy Thoughts, Watercolor

Hiya friends! Today, it is my privilege to be joining Altenew for their March 2109 Watercolor Brush Marker Release Blog Hop. Follow along for inspiring projects by many talented artists and comment for your chance to win one of several generous gift certificates to the Altenew shop!

Creating today’s project was easy peasy with just this, Tropical Fiesta, set of brush tip watercolors. It includes all the colors I needed to get me dreaming about island life, and then some. Come on summer, where are you?!?

I’ve created the background on Smooth Bristol paper with the Tropical Fiesta Watercolor Markers in Turquoise. I brushed in ample color toward the bottom and less as I went up the panel. After blending the color out with water, I added several spatters of clear water by sprinkling it from my hand. The clear water droplets disperses the watercolor toward the edge of the clear water and that is where the fun shapes occur upon drying. Set the panel aside to dry naturally for best results. I watercolored Bristol paper panels in the shades of red, pink and orange, as well as green, and allowed them to air dry.

Once the panels were dry I ran them through my Minc machine to “iron” them flat. I then die cut the Hibiscus Garden 3D flowers (<—LOVE these!) from the watercolored panels and layered them together with liquid glue. I tucked the assembled flowers into the Gradient Lines die cut in white I had adhered to the turquoise background panel. I cut an additional strip of white just wide enough for the sentiment stamped in Jet Black and adhered it just under a petal. 

Blog Hop
