Sometimes I feel like my creative projects are always all over the place. A sewing project. An art project. A home project. I'm sorry guys! Sometimes it just seems like I can't concentrate on one subject matter. I love creative projects...and I love trying new things! Lately I've been drawn to art, and well, decorating my walls.
I've been so inspired by all the beautiful watercolor art pictures showing up everywhere, and I wanted to try to make my own. What I love about this post today is that it has a little bit of water coloring (by hand!), some photoshop, and the whole process feels a bit like using rubber stamps. Oh, and did I mention it's easy? Yeah. Super easy. I think the technique could be really fun to make some awesome art from kids' doodles too....so put this project aside for mother's day!
But before I get to far along, I want to give some shout outs to some super inspiring work. First this tutorial on how to make brush presents. It was this post which first got my head turning about how to "stamp" in photoshop. I was also inspired by this beautiful fabric, and this beautiful illustration work.
When I was in high school and college I'd fill my notebooks with geometric doodles. My teachers would always think that I wasn't paying attention, but in reality I felt like I could concentrate better on what they were saying when I was doodling. There's something about this project that reminds me of those doodles! It's kind of brainless and fun.
Are you ready to get started? Let's go!
