color me...

Welcome back everyone!  

If you remember last week... we ended up with a fabulous image that was slightly devoid of color.. Well, today we are here to fix that. =)

My choice of tools.... well, lots of them!  

 Did you know that any water based pigment can be used with Creative Inspirations paint for fabulous shimmer in multiple mediums?

 Let's start with the obvious... Creative Inspirations Paint... 
With 59 beautiful colors, you can add a lot of color by simply painting with them.

Now, for the rest of the mediums, we are going to need to water to blend them... However, we are going for shimmer, so instead of using plain water, we are going to make a special water.

 We are going to be using Fairy Dust because it is the clear CI paint that will just add a pop of shimmer.  

Put some Fairy Dust CI paint in a small container.

Now add some water.  We need a watered down mixture to use with the other mediums.

Now you can use your Fairy Dust water to paint with regular watercolors...

 Water based markers...

 Watercolor pencils...

 Watercolor crayons...

Even water based inks like Tim Holtz Distress inks...

all of these will leave you with fabulous options for painting and the beautiful glimmer of the Creative Inspirations paint...

So what are your favorite mediums to mix with Creative Inspirations Paint?
