You don't need to be a watercolor artist to create beautiful watercolor greeting cards! All you need are good quality cards, gel pens, colored or watercolor pencils, and some basic coloring skills. If you're looking for something fun to do with Mom this Mother's Day weekend—or you just need a little break yourself—consider taking this interesting and relaxing workshop.
Coloring book artist, Carla Parvin, will start by reviewing basic coloring tools and techniques for using gel pens, colored pencils, and watercolor pencils, including a way to capture your color combinations. She will then show you how to blend gel pens and mix colored pencils and gel pens to achieve a watercolor effect. You will spend the rest of the workshop playing with your new skills!
A limited number of colored pencils, watercolor pencils, and paint brushes will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own if they have them.
