Watercolor Doily Technique using Squirts by Valerie

Hi Lindy’s lovers!

Valerie here and I’m coming back today with a brand new project! I had fun with the new Squirts and I created a fabulous watercolor background using doilies. It’s a very simple technique and the result is fantastic. You only need doilies, water and Lindy’s Squirts inks.

The squirts have a thicker consistency than Lindy’s Sprays so this is the perfect ink for this technique since the ink doesn’t leak under the doily.

Basic Process

  1. Use watercolor paper
  2. Place some doilies on your background
  3. Choose 1-2 colors of Lindy’s squirts. I used Polite People Purple and Banff Blue
  4. Paint directly on the doilies with a brush.
  5. Add water to create a watercolor effect
  6. Remove the doilies
  7. Add some drops with squirts on the layout and on the doilies
  8. Place the doilies one over the other and add your photo on it

I’ve created a step-by-step video so you can watch the entire process

Here are more close-ups of my finished layout
