Watercoloring Made Easy

by Kymona Tracey

Hello everyone! Kymona here with a fun, no pressure watercoloring made easy project.

How many of you purchased a planner for 2020 and are now wondering why? LOL! What I decided to do in my planner is practice my watercoloring.  Yes, when the year ends, I will have a pretty decorated planner to look back on.

Check out my watercolor planner pages:

I love how this flower looks on this page. It fits perfectly on the page, and the leaves are the right size to practice watercoloring.

Materials:

  • Inked Lotus Stamp Set
  • Artist Watercolor 24 Pan Set
  • Jet Black Ink
  • Planner
  • Pen

Here’s how to achieve the watercoloring look:

Watercoloring is perfect because you don’t have to be accurate when adding the colors to your images. It’s all about your imagination and how you see colors.

First, stamped the image in the corner of my planner page with Altenew Jet Black Ink,  so that the flower hangs over on the page. Very pretty.

Then, decide on the colors you want to add to the leaves. The technique used is wet-to-dry. The brush is wet, but the planner page is dry.

After you add the different colors that you choose, let the page dry either on its own or with a heat tool.

Stamp the sentiment at the base of the flower.

Last but not least, add some documentation if you chose.

I hope you liked this project. Would you try watercoloring in your planner? I would love to hear your thoughts. If you would like to see other planner projects, click here and here.

The paper in my planner is thin. How can watercolor work? won’t it bleed through?
