"Easter Egg Booklet"
Because Easter is Sunday, I made an Easter Egg Cover booklet. Using watercolors and pattering, I created the cover for this booklet in no time.
Using Strathmore Watercolor Cards, I drew an egg shape lightly in pencil, on the front of the card.
Then, using a paint brush, I wet the inside of the shape with water. I used Twinkling H20s to add color to the egg shape, letting the colors blend. I also added more water, so the colors would run into each other. Then I set it aside to dry. If you want to hurry up the drying process, you can use a heat gun for this.
After the watercolors dry, start to add patterns to the different colored shapes. I let the different shapes of the colors guide me. When adding patterns, try to balance the patterns, so one side is not more dominant then the other side.
I used five sheets of computer paper for the inside pages. I cut the paper to fit inside of the card and folded them in half. I then punched two holes in the papers and card. I used ribbon to bind my booklet and tied a bow to finish it off (see above picture).
Your booklet is now ready to journal, sketch or to give away.
