I confess, I am horrible at staying inside the lines when coloring! It’s just one of those skills I never “perfected.” Surprisingly, I was able to stay inside the lines (mostly :)) using a paintbrush and Smooch Spritz spray inks to color an adult coloring page! This coloring page bookmark is so easy, anyone can do it!
I created this bookmark by “painting” with Smooch Spritz and water. It’s a very simple technique that will pack a powerful color punch to any adult coloring page!
The best part-the color possibilities are endless with minimal supplies (see list below) needed. I have chosen to mix my color on an acrylic stamp block; this allows me to mix colors with water and create new colors.
I began by grabbing a few of my favorite Smooch Spritz sprays. After shaking the bottles to mix the pigment, I spray a few of the colors onto the acrylic block. I chose to dilute my colors with water to achieve more of a watercolor effect.
Next, I simply wet my paintbrush and pick up color from the acrylic block; a little really does go a long way! I clean the brush in between colors unless I want to mix colors to create a new color.
This is repeated until the image is finished! I love that even with dilution, Smooch Spritz retains it’s shimmery properties! I cut the page down to size, and for added stability, I mount the bookmark to a piece of cardstock. Once I added stitching, punched a hole for a ribbon, and added a label-this bookmark was finished!
This project can be easily replicated for teacher or class gifts! It’s also an awesome way to use every drop of those low Smooch Spritz bottles! Who knows, I may actually try this thing called coloring again! Will you give this simple technique a try?
