Altenew Refresh Your Watercolor Brush Markers Blog Hop (+Giveaway)

by | Sep 20, 2019 | Altenew, Blog, Giveaway, Happy Thoughts, Watercolor

Welcome friends! Today, I and around 20 other trendy designers, are showcasing Altenew‘s Watercolor Brush Markers to announce that they now have refills, yay! Altenew’s Brush Markers are delicious and full of luscious color which will last a good long time, but if you’re like me and tend to be drawn to your favorites over and over again, refills might be in your future! Of course, you don’t have to use a brush marker to paint with the new refills, in fact, you don’t have to use a brush at all… you could add a few drops of color to a paint palette and paint with your favorite brush, or you could even spritz water onto paper and add a few drops of color straight from the refill for a magical bloom effect! The ideas are limitless!


I am savoring the last days of summer and have watercolored this Everlasting Happiness beauty with the Spring Garden Watercolor Brush Markers set. My refill for the Sea Breeze blue background arrived just in time to replenish this well loved shade!

Begin by Antique Gold heat embossing Everlasting Happiness design onto an A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) Smooth Bristol cardstock panel.  Loosely watercolor larger flowers in Warm Sunshine, Autumn Blaze and Rubellite. Layering these three colors creates this gorgeous lazy late summer – early autumnal peachy shade.

Watercolor the smallest flower centers in Warm Sunshine and leave the petals white. Leaves are in Moss. Watercolor the Sea Breeze blue background by adding a drop of color from the brush pen or refill and blend out with a clear water saturated brush. Allow the color to vary in strength for a variegated finish. Stamp sentiment from Wispy Begonia in Obsidian Black ink. Complete project with a few sequins and a folded card base.
