Water color painting and Art Play, so easy!

 I've been playing aound with my ADORNit Art Play Paintables.  I love this art piece, created by artist Lindsay Ostrom, "Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear".

This is the original art that I started with.  It's from the "Home" collection and you can purchase it here:  Adornit "Home" Art Play Paintables 
I can promise you that once you take a look around and see how unbelievably inexpensive these Art Play Paintables are, you are going to want the entire collection!

If you've always wanted to learn water coloring, here is the super easy technique I occasionally use.
 Use watercolor pens, distress markers or archival ink dye pad.  For this project, I used Tombow Dual Brush pens from the Bright Collection.

1.   Blot ink onto an acrylic block or swipe your pens/markers across the block a few times.
2.  Dab a small paintbrush in water and dab onto your inked acrylic block.
3.  Paint and repeat, adding additional water to thin out your colors as desired.

That's it!  Super easy.  The flourish and stars were cut with my Cricut Explore™.  Photo editing done with PicMonkey: crazy-awesome photo editing .  Check out my supply list below.  "Like" me on Facebook because when I get to 500 likes, I'm having a big giveaway!
