Hello CK fans, It’s Leeann with you today and I’m super excited to be here too. I love using watercolors on my creations. You will notice splashes of color from some sort of medium on my pages always! This page was created using the Clique kit November tapestry kit. This kit is just so delicious and I was sold as soon as I saw the color navy… right now I am in love with that color! So lets get our watercolors out and have a wee play.
Lets start with a blank piece of card stock and paint some random circles using our water colors. We want 3 colors and 3 sizes. Allow to dry and cut out.
I have scrapped my page onto a black piece of white cardstock. So lets start with that as the base. All you have to do is paint lines down one side of the cardstock. Allow each line to fade before dipping back into the paint. Once you are happy with your painted lines. Place the circles on your page. Now we want to blend the colour from circle to lines and create a spill pool, add a few flicks of watercolor too. Allow to dry.
For extra detail grab some stamps and ink, stamp randomly. This adds extra detail.
Once everything has dried. Scrap your page. Isn’t it so much fun adding mediums to your pages. I like that it’s totally up to you how heavy or light you want to go. This is a great way to start out if this is your first time using mixed media products. And remember there is no right or wrong way…its all about having fun and telling the story!
Now you can check out the finished detailed shots.
I hope you have fun here today and come back soon for so more…
