10 Tips for Combining Pen & Ink and Watercolor for Beautiful Effects!

Hi friends! Today I want to share my favorite technique for combing Pen & Ink and Watercolor!

We will use fine-liner pens, these are especially useful because not only are the waterproof when used under watercolor they can also be used with alcohol markers without smearing if you enjoy using both types of media. You can use then to draw a detailed picture and then paint over it or you can add refinement and details to ho-hum paintings.

We will also play with metallic watercolors. They are really fun for adding glitz, glamour and special effects especially this time of year as we get ready for holiday crafting!
