For these two pieces, I started out with some watercolor paper. I painted the paper with water making sure that the entire piece was wet. Then I dropped in the purple, blue, and orange. The water does all the work for you! I love watching how the colors swirl around each other.
Once the paper was dry, I used some stamps and pens. I wasn't trying to fit the picture on the paper. I just drew and then cut the paper down to size.
I was really pleased with how it turned out.
