Watercolour Pencils Tips and Tricks – #1 Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles
I am currently on board the Anthem of the Seas cruise ship on our incentive trip and today is a sailing day! We are heading to the Norwegian Fjords!! Who knows if I have wi-fi or not, but I do hope that this post schedules ok!
Last week, Oliver came into my office to give me a hand with some prep and planning, and we ended up having a bit of a crafting session.
I had commented to him that I wanted to do a watercolour pencil card, and he was saying that as a left-hander, he doesn’t feel confident colouring as he goes outside the lines.
To be honest, so do I, but I decided this was a good opportunity to show him how to use watercolour pencils, and that they’re a great way to ‘cheat’ and make sure you’re always in the lines!
And while we did complete this card together, in the video I’m showing you the tips and techniques I apply when I’m using watercolour pencils.
Oh, and as an aside, Oliver coloured the racoon with balloons, I did the squirrel!
He did a better job than me…..!
But I do hope you find my tips and tricks useful. They work for me, and I’m a messy colourer normally….!
I hope you enjoyed this project, I absolutely adore what I do and spend many hours working on designs, new projects, new ideas and more.
