Today’s art is inspired by seasonal changes: the colourful combinations of vivid hues, the varied shapes and designs of all that blooms, and my love for tswhere imagination and inspiration comes to visit.
- Watercolour paper.
- Brushes and a water container.
- Masking tape.
- Mark the shape of your bookmark on the watercolour paper.
- Cut out the shape of your bookmark.
- Cover one centimetre along the edges with masking tape (I used the white tape, but the green tape takes off the paper more easily).
- Take four to six pieces of tape in varied lengths and create shapes on your bookmark by taping them in triangles and other shapes.
- Choose at least five colours. I like to start with a cold combination of colours (blues and greens) and one warm colour (dark yellow).
- Colour as you please! Remember to clean the brush well between colours. In the example, I kept the hues unmixed, but the sky’s the limit!
- Let the paint dry.
- Take the tape off (slowly and carefully, to not take any paper layers with it).
- Enjoy! You can add a writing on it, sign your name, or make another one in warmer colours (yellow, red, orange, pink and purple are beautiful to work with!)
