...my true love brought to me...one of my FAVORITE Prima products yet! If you haven't tried our watercolor pencil sets you really are missing out! If you have tried them then you know how creamy and blendable they are. Perfect for coloring books and paintables, they are ALSO perfect for projects "outside the box!" Today we will explore the wonder of watercolor with our 12 Days of Christmas projects featuring an ornament, a card, and a tag...all spruced up with one of our six Prima Watercolor Sets!
Choose your watercolor palette, then color away. Available in Scenic Route, Soft Neutrals, The Basics, Spring & Fall, Earth Tones, and Julie Nutting Skin & Hair Tones. The pencils work brilliantly for paper, flowers, wood, and so much more. Just add our waterbrush to the mix for beautifully blending and perfect color placement.
"It's no secret that I love watercolor and I've been looking forward to creating some festive cards with the Prima watercolor pencils!" ~ Fran Westmoreland
"I started out by painting a square of Memory Hardware leather paper with gesso, then created a watercolor effect highlighting the embossed pattern with pencils when dry. I blended, using the watercolor brush set, and added a doily stencil for texture. The velvet "Snowflake" leaves have also been tinted with the pencils, and given some shimmer with silver mica powder mixed with Soft Gel."

Are these festive or what? You do not have to go with traditional holiday colors when decorating your tree or home! Robbie Herring used our watercolor paper (just punch circles to create the balls) and watercolor pencil sets to create these gorgeous, color-filled ornaments! Choose the colors you want, then use a waterbrush to add diluted watercolor to each ornament. Dry, then top off with Prima flowers, berries, vintage trinkets, and art sugar!
