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