Camp Create Day 2: Wonderful Watercolor

It's the second day of Camp Create! Hopefully, you had an opportunity to work on your shaker card for Day 1 before lights-out. If you haven't had a chance to perfect your technique though, don't worry — you have plenty of time to participate in all of this week's crafts.

As a participant in Camp Create, you immediately earn the badge pictured above. Copy this image and post it on your blog, Facebook page, or Instagram feed to let everyone back home know how you spent your summer vacation.

Today’s Craft: Wonderful Watercolor 

Watercoloring is one of those techniques that is perfect for anyone from a beginner to a master. The loose lines indicative of watercolor make incomplete color an expected and even desirable effect! You don't need a specific watercolor to achieve a beautiful finished project either. As you'll see in today's video, the dye inks you already have in your stash provide the perfect starting point for your next watercolor project.

Join counselor Stephanie today to learn more about her process for today's camp craft.
