Handpainting Video Tutorial

Friday, August 24, 2012


My goodness it’s been a long time coming, but I finally have a new video!

I adore the hand-drawn look of the stamp set Love Blooms. It comes with stamps that will “fill in” the color for you, but I wanted to show a different way to use the set and create a handpainted watercolor look.


This is a perfect set for this technique. In fact, it’s probably impossible to mess it up. Don’t agonize over every brushstroke, just have fun and get painting!

Watch the tutorial below.

Tresa, we do not have television and my hubs plays "VJ" on the big screen with internet videos.
Friday night he was playing VJ and had shown me several shorts. Then all the sudden, you were on the big screen! Doug asked me if I had seen this video! How FUNN!
I enjoyed the video and the fact that Doug knows my likes so very well.
