Watercolour Tutorial with Tanya F

Hi guys it Tanya F here,

Its my turn up on the blog today and I have a video for you to watch  showing you how to do a watercolour background, I have also used this method on scrapbook pages.

Have you seen all these cool water colour backgrounds and you want to give them a try, but you just don't have the water colour paints and don't want to go out and buy some in case its not for you? Well you don't have to! What if I told you there is a good chance you have already got some vibrant watercolours at your home? Take a stroll to the kitchen and open your pantry... have you got water-based food dye in there?
This is a video tutorial I have done using Queen Food dye, and watercolour paper, if you don't have that paper it will still work fine on heavy white card stock (if the card is to light the water will warp it and it may get a bit too soggy)

So grab a cuppa and have a look

This is a scrapbook page using this months mood board colours using the same watercolour technique.

Thanks for stopping by,
until next time
Tanya F.
