Watercolor Resist ATC

Happy New Year!  I hope you enjoyed bringing in the New Year and you are looking forward to 2016.  I know I am.  Lots of exciting things planned for the new year.

To kick off 2016, I filmed a quick video to show a fun and easy watercolor resist technique.  I created an Artist Trading Card (ATC) in the video; however, you could use this technique in your art journal, on a canvas, the sky is the limit.  This would also be a great warmup exercise to get those creative juices flowing.

A few tips that I forgot to mention in the video, make sure that your watercolor surrounds your letters so they are legible, and sometimes it’s easier if you use analogous colors.  Analogous colors are three colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, such as red, red-violet and violet.  Using analogous colors helps prevent making mud, or colors that aren’t as interesting.  But have fun experimenting and seeing what colors you like to use together.

Simply click on the link below to watch the video:

I hope you enjoy the video and I would love to hear about your experience if you give it a try!  Thanks for stopping by the blog and be sure to visit next week when I tell you all about my Product Pick for January 2016.
