Watercolours- we want you to use watercolours on your layouts; we would love to see you get the paints out but if you can't do that you can use watercolour papers instead.
Watercolours - one of the vital products I use in my layouts. I was so happy to see them as the main theme for the September challenge. For this page, I used more paint than usually: white, dirty pink and bright pink; I mixed and layered and sprinkled. So much fun!!! If you'd like to see the whole process, I have a video tutorial on my YouTube channel.
My hubby surprised me with a set of Kuretake's Gansai Tambi Watercolors last fall, and I haven't been able to put them down since. I love them so! The soft colors, that I used for my background wash here, show up much better in real life. I also added them to those bitty stamped flowers for a little more interest with the perfect color match. I had so many beautiful pics of this special day for my daughter, that I couldn't possibly even get them into a two-pager. My pocket pages came to the rescue for the overflow.
The use of water colour paints or water colour effects are right on trend in scrapbooking right now and I love the amazing array of different effects you can create. I look forward to seeing your 'water colour' layouts.
I thought a soft watercolor background would be a splendid canvas on which to show a photo of the first colors of fall. I kept most of my elements pale and neutral, except for a couple of punches of pink.
I hope that's inspired you to get your paints out! If you do use watercolours we would love to see your layouts, please link them up in the side bar.
