BE MY GUEST: Watercolor Projects & Printables by Persia Lou

Hey there Homework readers! My name is Alexis, and I am excited to be here filling in for Carolyn today! I blog over at Persia Lou where I write about my latest crafty, crochet, or DIY adventures.

Lately, I have been really into watercolors. I love the layered, translucent look of watercolor. They can be a bit frustrating to work with sometimes because they can be a bit difficult to control, but that element of the unexpected is kind of what makes them so much fun!

Today, I'm sharing twelve of my favorite watercolor projects and printables from my blog. I hope you find something you like and that maybe you will be inspired to pull out your paints and brushes!
This Gilded Watercolor Artwork was one of my very favorite projects. It was so simple to make, but looks really luxe.
This Watercolor Pillow was my first attempt at a watercolor effect on fabric, and I am really happy with how it turned out.

My Embroidered Happy Spring Banner got extra color and interest from pink and coral watercolor washes.

I think this watercolor technique makes these hearts look like little gems. You can learn how to make your own over at my Faceted Watercolor Hearts Tutorial.

Recently, I went to a blog conference, and I made some pretty pink Watercolor Business Cards to take with me.

If you love watercolors, but would rather have someone else do the painting, check out some of the watercolor printables I have available for every season.

These Geometric Heart Printables are some of my very favorites.
This Watercolor Bunny Printable is perfect for Spring.

I painted up a favorite Harry Potter quote for this Halloween Printable.

A couple favorite Christmas Quotes Printables for Winter.

And I think my latest printable for Summer is really fun. This is actually a Printable Watercoloring Page. You print out the black and white image on watercolor paper and paint it in yourself! Fun, right?

And be sure to stop by Persia Lou to snatch up the watercolor graphic freebies I offer there like these Watercolor Feathers:
If you like these projects and printables, I'd love to have you follow along with me on social media!
