I love the look of watercolor. My 11-year-old granddaughter, Emily, painted this for her Mom a few weeks ago:
I just love it and am hoping for one myself soon! In the meantime, it got me thinking about watercolors, and with that in mind, I set to work on some Painterly Edges this week.
4. Next came the stamp of the female. Lella applied a mask to the stamp and gently masked away the harsh edges of the stamp, creating a beautiful blend of the stamp edges.
5. And for her final step, Lella added some text at the top right and the bottom left.
So simple yet so creatively artistic! Thanks for sharing, Lella!
Here is a sample Painterly Edge for you to experiment with yourself. Just click HERE or on the image below to download.
Suggested ways to use Painterly Edges are:
- Use a single edge to create interest on your paper, or combine with other edges to create a 2-sided, 3-sided, or 4-sided border.
- Place edges on your paper and experiment with blend modes.
- Clip coordinating papers or color layers to the edges.
- Use these edges to create beautiful border work on your photographs.
- And, as always, play with opacity and blend modes no matter what you do!
I hope you enjoy experimenting with these Edges!
