I loved this quote the second I heard it and knew that I wanted to make a Coloring Print with it. You’ve got to love a little Emily Bronte/Wuthering Heights in the morning, right?
I played around a bit with the coloring technique by first covering the letters in masking fluid and then layered a thin wash of blue watercolor over everything. (finally pulled out my new watercolor set!) I’m kinda diggin’ it. Not sure if it works the best with this quotation but I’m positive it would look killer on something for a beach or vacation home!
Definitely going to want to make sure to cover all the letters in the masking fluid before adding color. You can’t go back once the watercolor is down!
Start rubbing to remove the masking fluid. This was sooo much fun. It felt kinda like when you use to put school glue on the palm of your hand and then slowly pulled it off as it dried…wait…you don’t know what I’m talking about? I can’t be the only one that did that!
Don’t worry too much about mistakes. Adds to the organic feel of your art piece! Of course, if watercolor isn’t your thing or you don’t want to run out and buy some masking liquid, you could always color in the print with markers or colored pencils similar to my “So Lucky” or “I Love Everything” prints.
