Materials you'll need:

All you need to create your artwork is the Kassa Watercolor Set. It comes with all the essential materials including:

  • Water Paint Brushes
  • Watercolor Pad
  • Watercolor Paints

Brush Lettering Idea 1:

Our good friend Maggie from The Lettered Things blended her message to create a beautiful ombre look for her artwork. 

Step 1

Write out a message like happy memorial day in any font you want using a pencil on the watercolor pad. This will serve as a guide to follow while you paint.

Step 2

Sticking with the Memorial Day theme, Grab a water brush and paint over your writing with the red watercolor. Take your time and follow along the outline you made

Step 3

While the red paint is still drying, add a dark blue color to paint over the bottom half blending the colors together. Adding the blue paint to the wet layer of paint on the paper produces a soft, diffused look as the colors mix

Brush Lettering Idea 2:

Katie from studio.katie went all out and filled the entire page with Memorial Day decorations around her message

Step 1

Write out your message. This time you can use one color and add more water to the bottom of the letters making them look lighter. You can also add a small black outline to make the lettering really pop

Step 2

Add some flowers to the top of the page as a way to honor our fallen soldiers

Step 3

Add a banner with the words "remember & honor" in black ink and paint some red and blue fireworks around the page
