Guest Tutorial Writer

Hi Everyone! I am super happy to be a guest tutorial writer at  I have loved this site for about 13 years and use their tutorials and gallery all the time for inspiration, so being a part of it is just a thrill.
I was asked to share the Dappled Sky Technique.  This is a fun and EASY watercolor background that gives you really fun results.   This is the card I did for my tutorial.  I hope that you will check it out, and maybe give me some love in the comments 'cause it's my first guest spot and maybe they'll invite me back :)  Check it out by clicking the link.

And here are some other samples I made with this technique!
 This is one I made this past Christmas. Instead of using the whole background, I punched out a circle for a fun winter scene.
 When I made this background it said space to me.  So I made a moon to go along with it.  I made the moon by punching a circle out of watercolor paper, then getting it wet with a little Smokey Slate.  Next I flicked more Smokey Slate on top for the fun moon caters and texture.

 The Weather Together set is perfect for this technique.

 On this one I just made a small strip of the technique in Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry and then cut it out with the Tail from the Fox Builder Punch.
 On this one I used Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party and used it as water.
And on this last version I used Tranquil Tide for the background, then flicked  Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist on top.

Let me know what you think!
I have another older video on my YouTube Channel that shows this technique on even more samples.  you can see it here...
