Geometric Watercolour Heart

14 days of hearts - no. 4

My ScanNCut is being tempremental so I've forgone any cutting for today's heart.  I've pulled out my Arteza metallic watercolour paints to create this pretty geometric heart.  The colours I used were Cactus Green, Sky Blue, Plum Purple and Watermelon Pink.


  • Cut a heart from watercolour card.
  • Cut lengths of masking tape into thin strips.
  • Arrange the strips onto the watercolour card to create a geometric pattern
  • Wet the entire surface of the heart.
  • Drop colour into the sections allowing the colour to flow.  You might need to re-wet the surface if sections have dried.
  • For more of a watercolour effect don't completely cover the sections with paint.  You can also add more than one colour to a section and let them blend together.
  • Let the paint dry (use a heat tool to speed up the process).
  • Carefully remove the tape.
  • You could leave the heart at this point, but if you like, paint over the newly revealed white channels with gold paint.
  • Let the paint dry.
  • Place in a frame and hang as wall art.  It would also make a nice gift.

SUPPLIES

  • Watercolour card - I used Crafter's Companion 300gsm watercolour card.
  • Metallic watercolour paint - I used Arteza metallic watercolours but these are currently not available in the UK.  At time of writing this they are available in the USA.  Alternatively Altenew also do a metallic watercolour set.
