Hey everyone! Today, I have an easy faux watercolor background tutorial to share with you. And when I say easy, I mean EASY.

The only important thing you have to remember about this lesson is that the background coloring has to be done FIRST. If you color your main image before doing the background, you will mess up your main image. Just keep that in mind when doing this technique.
