Further Watercolor Adventures with Stencils - LauraMixedMedia

Hey there, Laura Dame here. 

One of the most relaxing things ever is to play with watercolors, and one of my favorite ways to do that is using them with stencils. The results are so unpredictable, which is one of the best parts. 

People often think that you can only use watercolors on special watercolor paper. While that may have the best, most "professional" results, my favorite substrate to use is ledger paper. 

There's something about ledger paper that doesn't cause the fibers to just absorb the water/paint like some other types of papers, allowing the paint to move and flow. 

Stenciled watercolor ledger papers are amazing for collage, and some can even be their own little works of art. 

I hope you enjoy the video and feel inspired to play yourself! 



Ledger Papers

Various watercolors - I use handmade watercolors from Art to Basic and Ocean Paper, as well as watercolors from Daniel Smith & Van Gough.
