Neale Whitaker may have said he never wants to see a Block contestant do DIY art, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a bit of fun in our own homes!!
Watercolour is a trend dominating homewares and art this year and today we’ve got a ridiculously easy tutorial for you to create your own.[ingredients title=”Items you will need”]
- Blank paper
- Paper with quote printed
- Watercolour and brush
- Whiteout (correction marker)
- Place blank paper on top of your quote print out and hold against a window so you can see the words. Trace out the quote using your correction marker (or lightly in pencil if you would prefer to use the correction marker at a table).
- Paint your paper in watercolour — ombre (one colour at top and one at bottom coming together), splodges or brushstrokes are just some of the techniques you could try.
- Once dry, touch up your quote with additional correction marker if needed. Frame and display!
We love the idea of some mini framed DIY watercolour art quotes in a kids room or study. You might not win any art prizes with this DIY but it sure is a fun way to add some positivity and personality to your home!
