Welcome to Watercolor Wednesday! This is a new feature here at Oh Snap Lizzie and I'm doing it along with one of my crafty buddies, Carisa!
Last weekend I attended a baby shower to a really awesome lady and her hubby, the baby's room is Star Wars, like legit, light sabers hanging up, Wookies and Yodas all over, it's just so cute! I wanted to make something that wouldn't take a long of time (momma of three over here) and that would look great hanging up on the walls. Enter the Star Wars Watercolor.
I found some Astrophysics book scans and then some free Star Wars images. Combinded them in Photoshop and then printed out on water color paper. Using my brush with just water, I predrew my lines with lots of water. Then I went over them with my brush. It lets the water colors kind of do it's on thing while keeping the drops and splatters and runs where you want them. Of course there was some heavy paint slinging, I mean that's the most fun of painting with any medium. And there ya go! Layered it with some Cardstock and pattern paper and it's ready for a frame.
I told you it was easy peasy!!
