Hi Blitsy Fans!
Today, I'm sharing a simple DIY watercolor sign that anyone can do. I went to a blogger conference recently and took a class on brush lettering. I am hooked! While you can use many different pens to achieve brush lettering, my favorite so far is the Pentel Aquash Water Brush. I am able to combine my watercolors with this beautiful artist technique and get some really pretty results. After warming up, playing with different color combinations and layouts, I was ready to work on my Walnut Hollow Basswood Plaque. I love the natural wood look of these and it is easy to prime the surface using Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground. I like using this to prep my non watercolor surfaces so that I can watercolor on anything I desire! In my video below, I share how I warm up and why I encourage you to keep a simple student grade watercolor journal as well. Let's get started!
