A few weeks ago, I featured a painting technique on a layout using spray mists as watercolors. Now, if you know me at all, you probably realize that I am not a very technique-y scrapper. I consider gluing paper-to-paper my signature "technique" and things like gelatos, gesso, and modeling paste tend to scare me because of the messy, inky, sticky disasters that result whenever I attempt to get artsy.
But this watercolor thing is pretty simple. And generally fool- and mess-proof. And therefore, right up my scrapping alley. I tried it again recently and here's the page that resulted:
S U P P L I E S :
I used the same mists to paint a watercolor background on some scraps of white cardstock. Then I let them dry and then stamped over the painted area with the vintage ticket stamp in the March JBS Mercantile Papercrafting Kit (which are still available if you want to grab one!)
Along with my photos, I layered these stamped squares and other papers from the kit and clustered them together in the center of the page. The title is a combo of a cut file and silver glitter Thickers. I handwrote the word "check" in Illustrator and then converted it to outlines to cut on my Silhouette.
The little plus signs are part of the exclusive wood veneers that are appearing in all the JBS kits. I used a silver Sharpie to color mine (but you can easily use just about any inks or markers to customize yours.) And whattayaknow - another color technique from me. They must be ice skating in hell right now. :)
Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!
