Well a little while a ago ( I am 99% sure it was in February ) I was lucky enough to create an article for Scrapbooking Memories Magazine for their " Mastering the Art" article. I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted to create an article about watercolours. I you know my work , lately I have watercolour on there somewhere!! My layout does not feel complete if there isn't a little touch of watercolour on there somewhere. I made two layouts and today I though I would share the first one with you.
I used a much older photo of my daughter Abigail as I really trying to scrapbook those little photos that I love so much. She just turned 6, so looking back at this photo makes me so nostalgic.
I used a lot of Maggie Holmes collection on this layout, as I just adore all the pre made embellishments that saved me so much time.. They all just work so well together and adding in a few extra items from my own stash worked so well...
For all of my water colouring, I ALWAYS apply gesso in the back ground. I find by doing this it adds a little extra interest and depth but most importantly it stops the paper from buckling, as I do not use watercolour paper to scrap on . So I tend to use templates and masks so that I can get a slight pattern in the back ground . Although on this pink coloured paper , the gesso has become quite apparent which I really love.
I love using clusters on my page , and even more so when there is pretty girly colours involved, especially Maggie Holmes girly ♥
Thanks so much for dropping by and I would LOVE to see some of your water colour layouts.. Link me to them please in the comments so I can take a peek.
Till next time
