Being the sea glass fanatic that I am, I’m always dreaming up ways to use my beach gems in DIY projects. I came up with the idea for these name cards when I was messing around with my watercolor paints. (Sadly, a rare occasion these days!)
DIY Sea Glass and Watercolor Name Cards
You will need:
- Watercolor paints
- Watercolor paper
- Stencils (I used stencils from my daughter’s book from Klutz called Lettering: In Crazy Cool Quirky Style)
- paint brush
- sea glass
- Diamond Glaze adhesive
- Corner Punch, Rounder
- paper cutter (you can also use scissors)
- Bone folder(optional)
Cut out your piece of watercolor paper. Size it to your liking. Remember, you will be folding it in half.
Fold in half. Use a bone folder for a clean fold.
Place stencil over the watercolor paper, leaving enough room on the left side to adhere a piece of sea glass. Trace name using pencil.
Trim the paper if there is excess room to the right of the name. Use a corner punch to round the edges.
Using watercolor paint and a fine brush, paint letters in desired color.
Adhere sea glass using a drop or two of Diamond Glaze.
That’s it! Pretty simple, huh?
