Fine art and graphic design meet with this painterly approach. Both whimsical and feminine, the faux watercolor trend is the perfect way to give your design a more personalized touch. It’s a style that’s perfect for boutiques and creative businesses looking for something a little outside the standard ‘flat color’ look.

We’ve gathered together some of our favorite print and online designs that rock this texturized wash. Enjoy!
