Make a Spray Mist with Watercolor Crayons

We hope you are enjoying our focus on Technique Tuesday's watercolor crayons this week!

We sure have liked sharing our tips for the crayons with you. And we are here today one more time with one more fun and easy technique for these wonderful crayons: Make a spray mist with them!

TT_WaterMist_1It's super easy! All you need is a watercolor crayon (or two or three), a pair of scissors, a spray or misting bottle and water.

Start by shaving off some color from your watercolor crayon.

TT_watermist2Dump the shavings inside a spray or misting bottle.

TT_watermist3Add a little water to it. Shake it up good to mix the color.

TT_watermist4(By the way, you might feel your spray mist isn't dark enough. Well, don't fret. Simply shave off a few more flecks of color and dump them inside your bottle!)

Now, it's time for the fun part: Using the mist!

Simply hold it over a piece of cardstock or watercolor paper and spray it a few times until you change the paper's color.

TT_watermist5We created the pastel pink, blue and yellow paper strips here with mists we made using this technique.

2_wonderful2_edited-1We paired our strips with some twine, a couple Technique Tile buttons and a sentiment from the Incredible by Ali Edwards stamp set.

Easy peasy!
