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.

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!
