Gooooood midweek to you, my friends! I teased today’s Faux Glazed Glass watercolor background tutorial a bit ago….and sadly, the yummy gold paints are so hard to get, I’ve delayed this post til now. I wanted to wait til they’re in -and now they are!


Watercolor background tutorial

I’ve been having SUCH a good time with these paints. As well as my watercolors. And when I saw the vase pictured in the video – I knew the paints would be part of my CASE! The background really does look like the vase – I surprised even myself! Can you believe this rich color came from “just” watercolors? Check out how I created it in the video below, or click HERE to watch it in HD on YouTube!

The Faux Glazed Glass background came out so pretty I nearly didn’t diecut into it. I had thought about just adding a sentiment. But then…that would be a panel covering up this deliciousness! So I bellied up to the BigShot and started diecutting, and am so glad I did. I just LOVE how this came out! (The die is currently out of stock, but keep tuned to my blog and I’ll let you know when it’s back in!)

For those missing my Copic videos – never fear! More are coming. They were crying as I made another watercolor background tutorial, and I’m going to be showing them some love—but mixing it up with other media too. The markers are like kids – they need to learn to share! Heehee!


More watercolor background tutorial ideas will be coming in the future…this was too much fun not to play with some more!
