Altenew Refresh Your Watercolor Brush Markers Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to Altenew's Refresh Your Watercolor Brush Markers Blog Hop. If you have come from Yoonsun Hur‘s blog, then you are right on track. You can also start the hop on the Altenew Card Blog.

For today's hop, I created several projects. I'll be sharing a layout and card here on the Altenew Scrapbook Blog and a second card on my personal blog.

For my layout, I used the liquid watercolor brush marker refills for a drip effect. These make the process a lot easier than the brushes but you can create a similar effect using the Watercolor Brush Markers.


How to:

  1. Take a sheet of watercolor paper and choose your color combination;
  2. Wet the paper at the top using a spray bottle.
  3. Add colors until you are happy with the result.
  4. Create your layout.


I love how the colors blended together and dripped down. I kept the rest of the layout simple and matted my photo on some contrasting patterned paper from the Essential Black & White 6×6 Paper Pack and added a stamped flower from a previous project that I never used. Some cut-out elements from the Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape added interest and broke up the contrasting background.

You can see how I created this layout in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.

For my card, I created a simple background by popping some watercolors on a glass surface and then dabbing my watercolor paper on it. I also added some color drops to the paper itself to create more contrast. I combined Mountain Mist, Lagoon and Dusk.


Then I took the Bubble Wrap Stencil and an ink (Lagoon) and blended over the stencil to get some detail on the background.  I cut out a flower arrangement from the Summer Garden 6×6 Paper Pack and added a sentiment from the Reason to Smile Stamp Set.
