Watercolor fun with Mixed Media Marks by Ellie Knol


Ellie Knol sharing fun watercolor backgrounds with you today!


This is where it all started.. watercolor play and trying to loosen up, on a big sheet of watercolor;  in the meantime getting the practice of brushstrokes and control of water in the process.
Not that I am new to watercolor, but practice makes perfect, doesn't it?

I did a watercolor workshop on Skillshare from Jo-Marie Barlow to create the backgrounds for the 10x10 cm cards and ATC format cards.

(as for Skillshare: 2 months for free!) 


 Why not play, and then cut it up?! 

 I gave it my own twist ..
... adding Mixed Media Marks... 

... and of course a stamped focal point....
 Grungy Butterflies and
Flowers Gone Wild and Doodle flowers on the ATC's. 

... I made 2 ATC's and 4 cards from the masterboard!!  

See you next time!
