Hello friends! Smitha here continuing the organization ideas with a few DIY Watercolor Labels today.
For a really long time in our household, it felt as if I was always cleaning and reorganizing. Constantly. I would make bins, tubs, buy cute boxes for things and yet nothing actually was put away where they belonged. Until I started labeling that is!
Now whenever I reorganize the kitchen or office, I always label everything. That way everyone in the house (and not just me!) know where to put everything back.
And when I get the time, I love to make my labels look pretty, and today I will show you how I made these labels in a few quick steps.
Trim watercolor paper to your required label size and pencil in your words. I am still a beginner at lettering and pencilling with a light Mono Drawing pencil 6H before inking the words works great for me. I later erase the pencil lines with the Mono NP eraser.
Using the Mono Twin Permanent Marker, doodle a black border all around, the wonkier the lines the better! Also add a few flowers and leaves.
Color in the doodled flowers with watercolors. I used these Yo-i watercolor crayons to add bits of color and then moved the color around with a damp paint brush.
Letter in your label word with the Tombow Fudenosuke brush pen and don’t forget to erase any pencil lines seen afterwards!
Last step is to adhere the labels to your bins, I like to use Adhesive Dots on the back of the labels- easy to see those dots on white paper!
And that’s it! Time to pretty up your organizing!
