watercolor pencils = easy NO LINE watercoloring!

OMG! Is no-line watercoloring the biggest challenge for you? Then these pencils are THE answer! If you can color inside the lines with a crayon or pencil, then, you can do it! Now, granted, I used the Flowing Drops stencil for this project, but the concept is the same.

I picked a color palette from the collection of 24 pencils to create a gorgeous, flowing blend. In some instances I outlined the drop completely in one color, but as I worked my way down to blend, I just outlined the top of a drop in one color and the bottom of the drop in the next color. Then, when I added in water, I let it do the blending for me! It was soooooo easy!

keep it simple

To let that beautiful watercoloring really shine, I kept everything else to a minimum. The sentiment was diecut using the Linear Pathway Alpha solid die set – one of my new favorites! The dark green mat underneath really let the sentiment and the watercoloring pop!
