Did you know you can create a gorgeous watercolor background from oil pastels? I’ve been so excited to try out different watercolor products and techniques lately but oil pastels simply never crossed my mind. I’ve always been taught that oil + water doesn’t mix.
When I saw the new Prima Marketing Water Soluble Oil Pastels in an on-line store I simply had to purchase them to see if this really would work.
They were actually a dream to work with and I can’t wait to try out more techniques with them.
Today’s project is a canvas fabric layout that uses these beautiful oil pastels to create a beautiful, and yes watercolored, background. This scrapbook page is in the CLASSroom today along with a tutorial on creating the background with step outs and tips. Be sure to stop by and see how I did it. You can also check out how I dried my canvas page on my Instagram feed here. It definitely made for a cute picture!
Thanks for stopping by!
