For the background, I used most of the blue pencils in the collection. When I put the color on the paper I would overlap the colors a little bit to make a smoother transition.
Once you are done with the watercolor pencils you add water! I like to use a bigger brush that will hold more water.
After all the colors have been activated by water and the blend looks the way you want, let it dry (you can speed this up a bit by using a paper towel to dab up and extra water, you can also use a heat source like a hair dryer to finish drying the background).
Use a circle paper punch (or whatever size/shape paper punch you would like) to cut out the tags!
Write whatever messages you would like on the tags!

Because she’s busy during the day, the night is when her creativity gets to explode into the world through lettering and messing around with watercolors.
