Dauber-licious Background

Hello! Today I'm sharing how I created a quick and colorful background
using Hero Arts daubers.

 
Initially I was planning to use the daubers as watercolors, but went direct to paper instead.
I literally swiped three colors--Cornflower, Tide Pool, and Green Hills--on watercolor paper, 
then let it dry. How fun and easy is that?


I added the pup, a few die cut doggie bones, the sentiment and stars. Done!


It's fast, fun, and forgiving and you could experiment with different color combos, too.

So the next time you're pressed for time, consider the dauber for your background.
And check out the new colors in the Hero Arts 2015 Summer Catalog!

Thanks for stopping by!
