Watercolour crayon words

Well, I think it’s safe to say that I’ve got a new addiction  hobby! Watercolouring! Today I’m excited to show you my watercolour crayon words! I enjoyed this so much and  I didn’t even get the professional watercolours, just the ones I remember having as a kid. So I wonder how the “real” ones would be like. I’m sure I’ll get them eventually, but for now these ones are just fine!

I’ve seen them on Pinterest a lot and always really liked them, and you can make stationary with this easy technique and oh so much more! Let me show you how easy it is!

I used these watercolours, brushes and watercolour paper and a golden wax crayon. I didn’t have a white one, and I think white would be also really nice, maybe even nicer. But the golden one worked great and looks good I think!

I wrote on my watercolour paper in my handwriting [you could also look for your favourite font on picmonkey and then copy it onto your paper]

Then, I started brushing the top part with pink and a adding a lot of water after to get that effect. I used the bigger brush and just wiped it from left to right, adding more water than colour towards the middle because I wanted it to fade.

As you can see, the wax crayon shines through nicely. I did the same with orange colour starting at the bottom going towards the middle, using less colour and more water.

    Katrin, you know I love watercolor and this is such a cool project! The gold really shows through the paint colors and it has a great look. As always, I love your style. I bet the girls loved this project too! How fun. You can use this in your class this year! Great mother’s day gift!

      Yes, you’re right, this on a card or in a frame would be a great gift idea Nikki! The girls can’t get enough of watercolours either… 🙂

    Katrin, I love this! And I love how you can do it with crayons. How fun! These colors and designs would be perfect additions to my current decor. I’m going to have to get my hands on this supplies and spice up our living room. 🙂

      Gina, it’s super fun, I’m sure you’d love this! And I used very basic supplies, cause I don’t want to be spending a lot right away when I’m trying out new stuff, you know? So, yeah, give it a try and let me know how it went!!! 🙂

    I love simple watercolor art. Do not know why I did not think of using a crayon – love this idea. I have used standard glue to write words and then pulled it off after the watercolors dried. Be-you-tiful job Katrin! Thanks for sharing at Brag About It this week! Pinned.

      Glue is a great idea too! I wouldn’t have thought of that!! Thanks Laurie 🙂

    Hi Katrin, what a pretty effect from some water colours and crayon! You could design some really nice looking cards using that idea.

      Yes, that’s a great idea as well, cards would be lovely with this technique! Thanks Debbie!! 🙂

    Katrin, your watercolor paintings are so pretty!! You have such beautiful handwriting; I would definitely need to print my fonts. Lol. I really like the ombre look of all the paintings, and the gold crayon gives it an elegant look!! I’m glad you’re enjoying watercolor painting!!

    This is such a cool idea Katrin. I see what you did the crayon does not let the color hide it. Very nice effect and the way the colors blend into each other is also very pretty. Now you’re going to steal all of your daughters’ crayons.
