How To Make Fun Watercolor Geometric Patterns 1


Hi Tombow friends, this is Jennie! Today, I will show you how to make watercolor geometric patterns for your happy mail! Young crafters might enjoy this project too!

Supplies:

Step 1:

Use washi tape to create geometric patterns on the paper.

Step 2:

Color the inside of the triangles with the Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I used the Dual Brush Pen Retro 10-Pack but any pack will work! I used four colors first. Blend the colors and create a watercolor texture using the Tombow Water Brush. I used the Flat Tombow Water Brush but you could also use the Medium.

Use the Tombow TwinTone Markers to add patterns inside the triangles. I made little swatches to figure out which colors I was going to use. Always swatch your colors. You wouldn’t want to ruin your art!

Step 3:

After the triangles are dry, use the Tombow Twin Tone Markers to draw patterns.

Step 5:

The washi tape covers a lot of space. Repeat steps 1-4 to cover that space. You might have to put washi tape on top of some of the shapes. Be extra careful when you remove it.

Step 6:

Time to make an envelope! Cut a 8.5 x 8.5 square of the geometric pattern paper you created. Rotate the paper to turn the square into a rhombus. Make vertical score marks three inches from the vertices. Rotate the paper 90 degrees and make vertical score marks 3 5/8 from the vertices. Use the Tombow Power Mini Glue Tape to glue the bottom of the envelope.

Step 3:

Cut more shapes or use a punch for the circles. If you want to keep this as a postcard, use the Tombow Power Mini Glue Tape. For cards, make it interesting with the Tombow Foam Tabs.
