Watercolor Tag



I have become a huge watercolor fan in the last few months.  Not since elementary school have I had such fun with paints.  I have always loved acrylics, but I think I have a new favorite!

I have been using Prima's Watercolor Pencils which offer beautiful, pigment filled colors.  I also love the tin that stores the pencils.   
Here is a photo of some of the tins that Prima has to offer....


Love Tag


I created the background for my tag using a watercolor pencil.  Once dry, I used a stencil to create texture, then sprinkled glitter for extra glimmer.  I painted floral images from Prima's Watercolor Coloring Book, cut them from the page and added them to the tag
