Projects & Thoughts from Louise's head & hands

Paints, Markers, Glitter Cards

Filed under: Paper Projects — Louise @ 10:58 am

Inexpensive and readily available markers, watercolor paints and glitter work well together.

In these examples the watercolor paint was used first to create the leaves, pine cones and needles.

Then image was strengthened with the use of markers.  The red berries, for example, have red marker applied around the interior perimeter; the middle of the berries where the color is softer is the original red water color.  Brown markers were used on the pine cones.

Finally I used a light application of spray glue and sprinkled glitter on the cards.  (When using spray glue it’s a good idea to have a prepared surface to protect it from over spray.)


Here’s a card I painted with water colours, enhanced with markers and glitter, gave it a new back and tied it with a gold cord:

Having fun creating with just markers:
