Today we'll be using gelatos in the colors blueberry and raspberry, and Pitt Artist pens in black, one brush tip, and one size M. We have some watercolor paper and a sandwich bag, and that's all you'll need!

Start by gently scribbling on your sandwich bag with the gelatos. You don't want to press too hard, but you want to get a good amount of color on the bag.

Next use a dropper (or even just a wet paintbrush or water brush if you don't have a dropper) and drop water across your paper. Then turn the sandwich bag over and rub it onto the paper with your fingers. Make sure you rub all over and get the color onto the paper.

Once thatʼs completely dry, use your Pitt Artist pens to letter your quote! I used the brush tip for the word "love" and the size M for the rest of it. Feel free to play around with your lettering and have some fun!

Chelsea has a not-so-slight obsession with all things lettering. Watching lettering videos is what got her started, and now you can usually find her posting videos using every art supply she can get her hands on! From brush pens to watercolors, and everything in between.
