My Mom tells me I am hardheaded and I think she must be right, because I did not want to give up on those doggone markers that we were all excited to get! haha So I kept at it to figure a way that would work and this is what is going to be my way of using them.
Sorry about not having the video I promised. I played with it for several hours and then it wouldn't upload to blogger. So now I just did a quick step by step with photos and will do a youtube later on with a whole picture after my Distress Markers come through the mail!
I know a lot of people have already been watercoloring this way so it will be a natural switch. I, on the other hand, have never done it this way, and it will take a bit of getting used to. I kept forgetting to put the water down first. haha!
Step 1: First lay water down where you want to color on watercolor paper. Not puddling, but just enough to be damp. I found too much water made it hard to get color on the paper (kinda obvious).
I know this is soooo basic, but I thought I would share anyhow!
I'll be back later with a new card, so stay tuned
