JustRite Tutorial Tuesday Watercolor Series Part I -Creating Designer Papers with Distress Inks and Distress Markers

Hello everyone!  It's time for Tutorial Tuesday for JustRite® Papercraft and today I will be sharing the first video in a series doing watercolor techniques.  In this first video I will be showing you how to do four different watercolor techniques.

The first technique is using Distress Inks and a square acrylic block.

The second technique is using Distress Markers and a rectangle acrylic block.

For the third technique I used Distress Inks and layers of water drops to remove some of the ink.  The layers of water drops in this technique give the look of Bokeh which is very popular right now.

For the forth technique I used Distress Inks and share how to create a watermarked using a background stamp.

If you would like to find out all of the details on each of these techniques and see a full step-by-step tutorial and a video tutorial you can hop on over to the JustRite Inspiration Blog or you can click HERE to check out the video.  But don't forget to visit the blog for a great giveaway!

    Great video Heidi. I have never done a watercolor technique.
    If I did one I would use the distress inks and pens.

  2. Great video. I am new to water color techniques but have purchased some watercolor paper and plan to try the acrylic block technique. So far, I have only used Gelatos to watercolor.
