Hello again! I hope that the showcase yesterday gave you the inspiration to try using watercolours on your projects. Today we'll look at a few more projects from the write.click.scrapbook team, and I'll share links to even more resources. Plus. there's something for the digi and hybrid scarppers too!
Laura sent me these two beautiful cards that she used watercolour techniques on. The first uses a simple colour washed background similar to yesterday's layouts.
On the Mother's Day card, she coloured in the stamped flowers with watercolours. Here's a tutorial from Elizabeth Kartchener showing how you can use a water brush to work with watercolours. It's the perfect way to do the kind of colouring that Laura did.
Another way of using watercolors is with watercolour crayons. Donna Downey shows how in this video.
I used them on a non-scrapping project a few months ago too.
You can get watercolor effects without using actual watercolours. Sometimes stamping inks will work!
See how this card was created over at PaperCrafts, and learn two other techniques too.
Using these techniques isn't just for paper scrappers! You can even find digital versions of painting effects to use on digital or hybrid pages.
This gorgeous page from Laura uses a background that is a digital rendering of gesso and paint. You can find the kit this paper is from here.
I found this digital watercolour set too:
Now you can splash and splatter without making a mess!
Finally, here's a set of free watercolor backgrounds.
So what do you think? Will you try watercoloring on a project?
Tomorrow we'll talk about embroidery and crosstitch, so get your needles and floss ready!
