TJ Inkspirations: Pretty Pearlescent Watercolors, Part 2 of 2

I finally have my voice back and I was able to finish and edit the second part of the two-part Niji Pearlescent Watercolor tutorial.I was also able to create a few more tutorials this week so that we keep on track while my travel schedule heats up in the next few weeks.

One of the places I am going to next week is Creativation -- it is the show most of us know by it's former name -- CHA.  I plan to take live Facebook videos when I walk the floor so that you can see and hear all of the excitement and new product launches. Check out my Facebook page for the videos (and friend me, if we are not already friends).

Now for the technique this week:

Today's video is #2 of a 2-part series. If you haven't seen the first, I urge you to go back and watch it, so that you have all the techniques in your arsenal. Today I cover two quick techniques for using these gorgeous watercolors. One of the reasons I love them so much is their ease-of-use, and at $7.95, for 21 little pots of color, the price can't be beat, either.

The products I used on the finished cards are here:
S771 Paint Rings
