When you have a product that works for almost ANY craft genre, then you really want to show it off! That's how we all feel about our Watercolor Confections. They are gorgeous for watercoloring and hand-lettering, of course, BUT they also look beautiful in planners, notebooks, on mixed-media, cards, tags, you name it...these sweet little boxes of magic are one of the best investments you will ever make. (You can find daily inspiration on our Instagram watercolor page. ..like this collage put together by one of our watercolor fans: @dgd_by_mims)

Today we want to show off how to add watercolor to mixed-media canvases! Ola, Stacey, adn Marta are talented designers who also love adding color to their projects!

"I decided to create a spring-themed layout with my own drawing. I really love birds. So, I found on Pinterest a few beautiful photos of birds and drew this sweet couple, using photos as a reference. Then I colored my drawing with the Classics set of Watercolor Confections by Prima. I also added some mixed-media touches to the background with Paper Paste, a stencil and watercolor splashes. The Cherry Blossom collection helps me to express the spring mood of this project, but also to keep it delicate, fresh, and not too busy." ~ Ola

"I was so excited to play with the new Watercolor Confections Palette - Woodlands!!  I only used two colours out of the set, Pond and Greystone.  My gosh, Pond is the most amazing minty teal colour.....love it so much.  I had so much fun working on this swan and giving her loads of texture and sweet glittery features." ~ Stacey
