Do you like blooms? I bit of an odd question I know! Ok, let me explain! I'm not talking about flowers but I'm talking about watercolour blooms, you know that jaggered edge texture you that can develop when two wet areas of watercolours meet? Some people don't like them but I really like the texture that they make and they are totally one of the fun features of using watercolours.
Recently, I've been playing about with them and today's video share is a project walkthrough where I've used this jaggered edge bloom property of watercolour paint to make a textured background for an drawing or an illustration.

The pen pattern is based on a recent Art Slice design I've been playing with. I've just used one element for this project and added in some character by changing the line thickness and adding in some texture in the centre.
So are you a bloomer?! Let me know below! If you are new to it I hope that you will give it a go and have fun with it!
