Studio Katia's Lovely Blooms - Framed No line Watercoloring with Watercolor Crayons


Hello Everyone!

I'm back today with a no line watercoloring project featuring the Lovely Blooms from the latest Studio Katia Release.

I loved how the coloring of these flowers turned out so I just had to frame it! Difficult to see from these photos, but the gentle shimmer is so pretty in real life. 


 I began by stamping the Lovely Blooms onto watercolor paper using fadeout ink. I then took the time to watercolor these blooms using some Shimmery Watercolor crayons that I had picked up from Michael's so long ago and hadn't used them, so it was about time. To turn the crayons into watercolors, I rubbed the crayon onto a watercolor dish, added a drop of water and mixed the pigment with the brush until I was happy with color and consistency of the watercolor.

I'm not going to lie, this watercoloring was a bit time consuming but I really did enjoy the process as I learn a little more each time and I find it very relaxing. Plus, I have been participating in Kathy Racoosins #thedailymarker30day challenge and this piece, of course, is one of my challenge pieces. I guess you only get better if you keep practicing and for me, I still trying to learn how to use all the different media I have 😉


Other than adding highlights with a white gelly roller pen and some glossy accents to a few of the flowers, that was it for this project. Sometimes less is more. Of course, this could easily still be turned into a card in the future.

Thank you all for joining me today, I hope this Framed No line Watercoloring of the Lovely Blooms with Watercolor Crayons was inspiring for you.

Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋
