Fun with Watercolors

Last week I did a little experimenting with watercolors and straws.... and it was so much fun!

I got the idea when I saw a video on how to use a medium called ecoline, which is basically a liquid watercolor kind of paint.  Since I didn't have any ecoline, I tried out the technique with my watercolors.

This is a great way to have fun with paint and it's something the kids can do with you!  Stay tuned for the tutorial :)

    You're so right about having enthusiasm for a creation - it totally shows in the finished work!!

  4. What a good idea of simple ways to use watercolors. I love using watercolors and this way you dont even have to be good at drawing to get a great colour mixing effect!!
