drawn fish and Ecoline Watercolor Brush Pens

 

Watercolor brush pens are a great way to add color to an art journal page and I thought I would have a bit of fun today and use my Ecoline watercolor brush pens to make a whole art journal page. So watch me make this page and count the 15 ways that I used the Ecoline watercolor brush pens with me!

It is a double page in my junk journal and you can see from the supplies list below that I really have only used these watercolor brushes! But don’t worry if you don’t have them because you can try these techniques with the other watercolor brush pens that you have in your stash! You can also see the whole finished project if you scroll on down this post!

VIDEO: Prismacolor Pencil Coloring tutorial And Etsy News!

Easy Coloring with pencils with a video by Kim Dellow

I’m using Prismacolor pencils in my video today and sharing some tips and tricks on how to color with pencils along the way. But you don’t have to just watch the video you can also coloring along with me as I have the very same image that I am coloring up in my Etsy shop ready to buy, download and print then colour with your pencils or your pens or whatever your favourite coloring medium is!

Yep, I have re-openned my Etsy shop! I thought it was about time that I did! So look out for new products over the next few weeks and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you! I’ve started with this Anemone flower image that I have been working on recently. You might have spotted it on my Instagram feed and also in my behind the scenes video on YouTube.

So it seemed like a good idea to do some coloring and make a video whilst I was at it! I’ve used two different techniques to colour the image, one to give a smooth finish and another to just add a little bit of texture, so I hope you enjoy it.

VIDEO: Watercolour And Pen Project Walkthrough

Watercolour and pen pattern adding texture in the background. By Kim Dellow

Do you like blooms? I bit of an odd question I know! Ok, let me explain! I’m not talking about flowers but I’m talking about watercolour blooms, you know that jaggered edge texture you that can develop when two wet areas of watercolours meet? Some people don’t like them but I really like the texture that they make and they are totally one of the fun features of using watercolours.

Recently, I’ve been playing about with them and today’s video share is a project walkthrough where I’ve used this jaggered edge bloom property of watercolour paint to make a textured background for an drawing or an illustration.

The pen pattern is based on a recent Art Slice design I’ve been playing with. I’ve just used one element for this project and added in some character by changing the line thickness and adding in some texture in the centre. 

So are you a bloomer?! Let me know below! If you are new to it I hope that you will give it a go and have fun with it!

Kim
