Watercolor Negative Painting Technique + 20% Off Neat & Tangled

Hello Crafters! 

Labor Day weekend!
Whose excited for a three day weekend?

......
Not this girl, I'm working until Monday but if it is you I'm super happy for you :) 

Speaking of things to be happy about, let's talk sale! 


Neat & Tangled is having an awesome sale of 20% Whoo hoo! You can shop the store here



So I saw this amazing negative painting video tutorial the other day. I was so inspired by her mini painting I decided to see if I could mimic the look with stamps. Turns out yes- ish. There was a learning curve. 


The idea behind negative painting is for you to lay down a layer of color stamp or draw an image and then paint around it. You can slowly add more layers building up the darkness as you go to create a very dimensional painting. 


I also tried the Ink on 3 Fade Out ink which takes on the color of whatever your coloring. Absolutely works as advertised and it's extremely helpful when you remember it does that lol. 

Check out the video below to see what I mean 


It's a very different look for me but I'm glad I tried it. I think with practice it would be a very cool technique to master. What do you think? Will you try it?


Thanks do much for stopping by! 
I hope you have an amazing weekend :)

  4. Wow Kely, every little animal in the neigbourhood loves you and want to come over LOL, perhaps they want to learn how to make those gorgeous cards you make LOL. Thanks for showing this technique, didn't know it, but I don't know if I have the patience for it to make it just as awesome as yours. Thank you so much for showing.

  5. This technique turned out so cool. I am surprised it didn't get muddy. Maybe the frog was going after his meal.... the spider..
