Shabby Watercolour Balloon for Unscripted #258

I really enjoyed the Online Classes Watercolour for Card Makers class. I learned I was not using enough water to get a really good watercolour look.

I used lots of water for this! Actually, it was hard to mix the colours to match the papers so when I coloured it, it was too bright. So I tried adding water and lifting the colour to soften the overall look. It worked a bit but was still pretty bright so I added a wash of gesso over top. It worked really well but it dulled the stamping lines so I went over them with a pen.

It’s a really fun sketch this week with lots of layers for those of you who love them like I do! I hope you will come and play with us. Be sure to check out the awesome projects by the team at Unscripted Sketches.

Enjoy, Rebecca

I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
