I love to add color to objects in new and fun ways. Watercolor pencils are a wonderful tool for doing so! For my project today, I decided to use watercolor pencils to add color to felt. Here is what you'll need:
a piece of scrap paper, watercolor pencils, a squirt bottle filled with water, felt (white or cream colored felt works best) and glitter (I used Stickles)
Lay the felt onto the scrap paper. Squirt it with water so that it is dampened. Then rub the water colored pencils onto the felt. Lightly shade it on using the side of the tip. I used two different shades of blue on this project. While it is still wet, blend the color onto the felt using your finger. Leave some areas lighter than others to create a 'mottled' effect.
After it dries a bit, apply the Stickles. I spread this around with my finger as well.
Let the felt dry thoroughly. The Stickles take a while. I left it over night to be safe.
Once the felt is dried, you can use it to create a card, like I did, or add it to a scrapbook page or altered project.
Watercolor pencils are such a versatile, too. They aren't just limited to paper. As you can see, they add wonderful color to felt!
So, grab those pencils and get started!
