Paint Gladiolus in 8 Minutes with Watercolor Markers!

Howdy folks! I’m happy to report that my back is better today! Next time I get into a bounce house I will stretch first LOL! The other day a YouTube viewer asked if I could do a tutorial on painting pink gladiolus flowers, so I did.

Instead of using watercolor paint I used water based markers. You can use any brand: Tombow, Distress, Crayola, LePlume, Faber Castell, Whispers or Stampin Up. The key to this is to work on watercolor paper. You will also need a bucket of water and a brush or a waterbrush. Watch the 8 minute video to see how fast and easy it is!

This project was a lot of fun and it is a new way to use a supply most of us already have…in fact it might be fun to bring just my markers and waterbrush the next time I go out in nature to paint! If you have any questions please leave a comment and I will get back to you. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Brilliant color! Lovely result – I will try it – my mind over thinks these things, so perhaps limiting myself to 7 minutes for the creation will keep me from over working it. If not – it was only 7 minutes…Thanks for sharing – you are amazing, and so talented! Each post is a surprise!


  2. I love your paintings. This one is lovely also. Will give it a try in between projects. Used coluzzle for the diamonds on this week’s challenge at OSA


    1. I might, I found a location nearby that is great, Are you going scrapping Friday? I’ll give more info then!


  3. I did it! So excited – It really helped to put it down and leave it alone! Thanks! I will try to post a picture on your blog.


  4. “beyootiful plumage” you are so talented. I don’t paint because I can’t draw. I enjoy your classes though.
