Playing with Techniques

This watercolor saran wrap technique creates some very fun designs.  It requires lots of water and color on the paper, and enormous patience in waiting for it to dry before you pull off the saran.  It's always a surprise.  This blue one was really one of my favorites!  I couldn't bear to cut it, so I used a new Xcut die.  After cutting the pieces of the dragonfly,  I rubbed them with Versamark and covered them with gold embossing powder.  I considered adding some golden sequins...but hate to distract from this lovely dragonfly.  The watercolor panel is popped up with foam.

  1. Wow, Dena, that saran wrap technique certainly made a wonderful background. I love it. The beautiful gold embossed dragonfly shows up so well against it. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. Such a pretty background, well worth the wait.
