Thank you all for your patience while we settle into our new home! An across country move is no small feat and I am still getting things situated but yesterday I took some time with the kiddos to get our watercolor paints out and have a little fun. In our new rental home, my kids actually have their own room (they shared before in NM and loved it but the time has come for their own spaces). You might have seen this Instagram pic that is the color inspiration for my daughter’s room. Today I am sharing some Watercolor Gem Easy Art work that will be displayed in her room.
This is August’s edition of my East Art work series.

Using Martha’s thick *patterning tape, I laid out the basic shape for my watercolor gem.
Then, I used her thinner, stencil tape to create shapes within my gem. Make sure to push on all edges to ensure a clean edge with your watercolor.
Next, using orange, yellow, purple and fuchsia I filled in each small shape with a simple wet wash technique.
After the paint had dried, I used a thin point pen to doodle some designs overtop the watercolor. I left some spaces blank to not make the painting too busy.
Lastly, remove your tape and enjoy the crisp white lines.
I love the girlie colors and patterns. I think it will go so perfectly in my daughter’s new “big girl room”…. she’s four, so it’s all relative!
