Listen to Your Art

Technique: Wet on Wet Watercolor

This week I bring you another lil black and white with a pop of color journal page featuring Vera Lane Studio digistamps and Brea Reese Glitter Inks & Texture Paste.

These are the Brea Reese products I used to create the pop of color and texture on my art journal page.

 Click the image below to see the video of my process.

You can find Brea Reese products at your local Hobby Lobby in the art section or by contacting them at BreaReese.com

Brea Reese products used:

  • Glitter ink- medium magenta 
  • Glitter ink- lake blue
  • Glitter ink- cadmium yellow 
  • Texture paste- Matte metallic black

I honestly can’t believe how highly pigmented the inks are. I mean for less than $5 per color it’s amazing! You will see in my video above you don’t need much product at all! As for the texture paste, it’s a wonderful way to add a bit of dimension & color to your mixed media projects. Oh and let’s not forget… sparkle too! I used my finger to rub accents of the texture paste near the quote and at the bottom of the page.

There will be a lot more Brea Reese products in my future projects! I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been working on!

Quick overview of my wet on wet watercolor process includes:

  1. Adding water to my journal page. 
  2. Adding Brea Reese glitter inks to the area where there only water. The inks won’t travel outside the area with water. It’s amazing watching the colors move and blend together! (Go watch the video!)
  3. Using a heat gun to speed the drying process because I’m impatient 😁

The beautiful digistamp and sentiment, Le Petite Artiste, I used this week is from the Vera Lane Studio Etsy store. Just click the image below to get yours!

I colored her only with Caran d’Ache Neocolors ii in black. I just colored a bit on my nonstick surface with the black water soluble crayon. I added a little bit a water from my waterbrush and just used varying shades of black and gray to color the tiny artist. 

We have a themed ATC swap each month over on the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group. This month the theme is Black & White with a Pop of Color and I’m the host! You still have time to join in the fun! The swap concludes at the end of the month.
