Hello it’s Leeann here today and I have another page to share with you all. I am loving the la dolce vita June kit. There’s so much in it that makes me happy. Especially that I can add so much color myself. I love all the tabs and tags from elle’s studio in this kit. They are a staple in my pages. These I love using for layering on photos. But today I wanted to show you how quick and simply it is to add color to pattern papers that are more neutral. Hoe amazing is that pattern paper with all the quotes using different font. Love it Mega! All those quotes are so this girl too. Ok so lets take a look at my page and go from there.
I think most of you know that I LOVE my watercolors and I use them alot on my projects.
So let start with placing our pattern paper down and getting our watercolor paints ready.
Using a flat head brush with a width of 1 cm, I dip the brush in water first and add that to the paint creating a pool of color. Once I’m happy with my pool of color I start at one side and swipe the brush across the page, just once. Add a flick of color to the top and bottom color bands.
For extra detail I’m adding some random stamping using a mixture of shape and quote stamps. And some doodling with a black gel pen. I have added some machine stitching for extra detail also.
I hope today was fun and you grab your watercolors and have a play. Try using different bushes for different strokes.
