15 Watercolor Projects And Printables For The Beginner

Want to meet one of my inspirations when it comes to all things crafty? Cause today I’m excited to introduce you to my friend Alexis from Persia Lou. She is one talented lady and I just absolutely love her! We have been long time blogging buds and met in person for the first time this past spring at SNAP. #roomies

So let’s get to it… take it away Alexis!

Hey there! I’m Alexis, the girl behind the craft and DIY blog, Persia Lou. I am so excited to be visiting my friend Corey today to share some of my projects and printables with all of you!

I am always up for a new crafting experiment or DIY challenge, but I also have some favorite mediums that I keep coming back to. One of those favorites is watercolors. For me, nothing is more relaxing than an afternoon playing with my paints and brushes. Since it is one of my favorite creative outlets, it’s probably no surprise that I have lots of watercolor projects and printables posted over on my blog, and I’ve rounded up some favorites to share with you all today!


First, I have a few tutorials to help you create your own works of art. Even if you have never painted with watercolors before, these four projects are totally do-able! You will find step-by-step instructions and photos to help you complete each one. Pick your favorite and get painting!

Gilded Watercolor Artwork || Faceted Watercolor Hearts

Or, if you’d like an even easier painting project, try out one of my printable watercoloring pages. Just print out the image on 90 lb watercolor paper, and paint away!


Popsicle Print || Treat Yo Self Gift Box || Popsicle Notecards

If you don’t want to paint yourself, but still like the look of watercolors, you can download one of my free watercolor prints or some watercolor graphics to make your own designs with.

Free Watercolor Feather Graphic || Gem Heart Printable

And finally, watercolors don’t have to be limited to just art! How about a watercolor technique on fabric or wood? Yes please! These other watercolor DIYs are some of my very favorites.


Watercolor Pillow || Watercolor Placecards

Watercolor Temporary Tattoos || Watercolor Wood Letters

I hope these projects will inspire you to break out the watercolors and create! I would love if you came by to visit me at Persia Lou, or you can find me on Pinterest, Instagram, or Facebook.

Thanks so much for having me, Corey!
