Hi! Tina here today with a fun, artsy, and totally hip layout!
Watercolors are super hot right now and everyone is using them on their layouts, mixed media projects, and home decor items. I thought I'd jump on the 'watercolor bandwagon' and create my own version of watercolor love.
To create my watercolor 'tiles', I first heat embossed several shapes to a piece of white watercolor paper. (thick cardstock would work well too). Once all my shapes had been embossed, I began adding watercolor in various colors to the piece of watercolor paper. I really love the shades of pink, purple, blue and green that were created when the watercolors mixed and mingled with each other.
Once the paper was dry, I cut it into randomly shaped squares and rectangles and stitched them to a piece of white cardstock. I seriously love the color on this page. It makes me happy!
To finish my layout, I added a small picture behind layered chipboard pieces and added a chipboard strip and twine above the title. I love this technique so much, I think I'll have to lift myself on another future layout. :)
So get out those watercolors and make your own unique background!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fantastic week!
