Yesterday I took some time with the kiddos to get our watercolor paints out and have a little fun. 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.

What supplies do I need to create watercolor gem art work?
How do I paint a watercolor gem?
True to my typical craft style, I did not measure or may anything using a ruler. So throw those rulers out the window and get creative with me!
Using Martha’s thicker stencil tape, I laid out the basic shape for my watercolor gem.
Then, I used a thinner, patterning 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!
