I had such a great time hosting my first ever live craft talk with my DIY Puppet/Boat project. It was really simple, requiring very little crafting experience.
This next one is a half step more complicated. Using stencils, a neat thing called embossing powder and watercolors, we’re going to make a watercolor resist art piece.
Lately I’ve seen these pretty DIY projects throughout the craft stores I frequent. They look mostly blank until you paint them with watercolor paints. When you do this, parts of the canvas resist the paint which reveals a figure. It is sort of like a secret message that you reveal with paint.
I love the look of these projects, but sometimes their price tag is a bit high. Plus a lot of the images are text phrases and I’m not a huge fan of too much text hanging on my walls. (I think it is because I’m a graphic designer and the text really catches my eye.)
So – I’m going to show you how to make your own!!
