JFJ 15 for 30 Challenge - Day 12: Watercolor Textures

Texture brings a lot of visual interest to our pages, and with watercolor paint we can create quick and simple textures by using some experimental techniques. We can use sponges, salt, rubbing alcohol, plastic wrap, bubble wrap, and string. We can use our fingers or a scraper, or we can use an old toothbrush, a cotton swab, or a crumpled paper towel.

For at least 15 minutes experiment with stamping, splattering, scraping, lifting, and dabbing the paint. Try for uneven, jagged, and rough looking textures and feel free to use multiple colors and to layer textures one on top of the other.

Share your responses to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media. Don’t forget the hashtag so we can see what you’re up to. #jfj15for30.
