Watercolor beauty



Watercolors are so beautiful and breezy most of the time. It's typically light and airy but at the same time grounded with deep colors that span the spectrum. I have become much more interested in watercolors lately, especially out of their traditional paint and paper context. Watercolors don't have to be limited to a small framed space on a wall. Why not do an entire wall altogether? Or embrace the colors and wear something flowing and watercolor-inspired? Branch out of that frame that your watercolor painting is in and let the paint flow elsewhere!



This is by far my favorite example of embracing watercolor. If I had a dining room, I would do this to the walls in a heartbeat.



As an invitation designer, I love the simplicity of this design paired with the intensity of the watercolor effect.



If you're short on wrapping paper, get creative! This is entirely to pretty to open!



I would tag so many things if I made these! I love the use of a common object brightened up in watercolor paint



Such a beautiful way to display color while being elegant and fun at the same time.



Choosing almost-monochromatic hues are the best way to go when it comes to watercolors.
