DIY Watercolors With Markers!

Hellooooo world πŸ™‚

I’m back at it with another DIY, this time is watercolors! It’s extremely simple and basically free if you have markers. I’m terribly sorry for the bad pictures, I have a pretty old phone…

You can use this DIY Watercolor for school or art projects if you don’t have regular watercolors. Works awesome for (bullet) journaling also! (look at the end for an example)


1. Markers (fat tip preferred)

2. Small plastic sheet/box (anything that won’t absorb water and markers)

3. Paintbrush

Step One: Have some water in a cup or box to dip your paintbrush in.

Step Two: Using your markers, draw on your plastic sheet.

Step Three: Add water depending on how pigmented you want your watercolors to be.


Step Cuatro:Β Voila! Time to Draw! Told you it was easy πŸ™‚


BelowΒ is a spread I did for my Bullet Journal. It was kind of a fail because the water colors turned black because of my inky pen… but hey, we’ll just call it an artistic effect πŸ™‚

Please tell me if you try it out! It only take a minute or so πŸ™‚

Luv ya all,
