Have you ever needed a beautiful wash of watercolour to use as a background element for your website or in a design, but haven’t been able to find exactly what you wanted? Well my friend, I’ve got a super quick and easy little DIY video tutorial for you, and you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried this out before!

DIY watercolour graphics video tutorial

This video DIY for how to create your own watercolour backgrounds was originally streamed live on Periscope (hence the vertical layout, sorry about that!), so you may hear me talking to myself a little – what I am actually doing is replying to comments that popped up on my screen at the time! 😉 

Materials used in this tutorial:

  • Derwent Watercolour Pencils
  • Watercolour paper pad
  • Various paintbrushes

You can get these supplies online or in your local art supply store or (most likely) at your local office supplies shop!

Let me know in the Makers Co community group if you try this out (I’d LOVE to see the results!) or if you have any other DIY tricks or tips for others creating their own graphics.


Sometimes, even when we are doing all the right things, it can feel like we’re spinning our wheels and not moving forward at all. This could be because you’re focusing on the wrong area of your business – or doing all the right things, but at the wrong time.
