I think many of us were waiting for this: Altenew watercolor paints. The cherry on the cake is that they match perfectly with the Altenew inks which means you can mix and match them in your projects.
This beautiful set of 36 vibrant watercolor half-pans coordinates perfectly with our line of ink. They are intensely pigmented and fade minimally when drying. They are stored in a convenient plastic case, designed with space for your brush (included) and a palette in the lid for mixing.
36 Watercolor Half-Pans (colors listed below)
Pink Diamond Forest Glades Evergreen Paper Bag
Puffy Heart Frayed Leaf Mountain Mist Mocha
Purple Wine Bamboo Lagoon Espresso
Cosmic Berry Citrus Burst Emerald Industrial Diamond

I created two projects with the set. One can be admired here and you can see the second one in my blog.
For this project, I used a resist technique. I stamped a couple of shapes from the Geometrical Flowers Stamp Set using embossing ink and white embossing powder, which I heat set. Then I added some color using the watercolors.
A couple of cut-out butterflies and hearts add detail and flow to the layout. I popped them onto some enamel dots for extra dimension.
For the title, I opted to use the chipboard word from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection.
You can see how the whole layout came together in the video below. Or watch it on YouTube in HD.
