Watercolor and Dew Drops

I have been playing with watercolor a lot lately. Its unpredictability is both nerve-wracking and rewarding and I have found the simplest of marks make the most beautiful designs. Take for instance this project; I began with three splotches of paint and look at what it became!
You too can easily learn to do this. Simply follow the tutorial below.

Robins Nest products used:

Goldenberry Dew Drops 

Other supplies used:

watercolor paper
Ecoline Brush Pens (any watercolor ink or paints will work)
  • Turquoise Blue
  • Deep Green
  • Deep Yellow
  • Green
watercolor brushes
water
craft mat or palette
paper towel
pencil
waterproof pen such as Micron
the adhesive (I used Nuvo Embellishment Glue)
black ink pad and sponge
quote or sentiment

Step 1

Place a little watercolor ink on a craft mat by scribbling. Using a very wet brush pick up some watercolor paint/ink and create 3 splotches on your paper.

Step 2

Use a paper towel or soft cloth to remove any excess. Allow to dry.

Step 3

Fill in the sky and the grass area with your watercolor paint. Allow to dry.

Step 4

Use a pencil to draw the branches and tree trunk. If you are comfortable drawing with the pen you can skip this step.

Step 5

Now go over with your pen.

Step 6

Place dabs of glue where you will place your Dew Drops. This is a very intuitive process.

Step 7

Now stick your Dew Drops in place.

Step 8

Use a sponge and black ink to go around the edges of the paper to add a shadow paying particular attention to the base and add a quote if you like.
