Watercolour, Cork and Sequins

Morning Friends!

I get these ideas sometimes… they come from seemingly nowhere and won’t leave me until I’ve made it into a tangible project.  This latest idea was to create a watercolour wild meadow with dandelion cut files on top.  I searched all the usual places and even asked my favourite designer if she had anything.  She had one but it wasn’t what was in my head!

So I doodled my own, took a photo and made it into a cut file.  It is not perfect, and it is NOT easy to get off the cutting mat but I got enough off to make it work for me…

I joined 3 together with a simple stitch and then got to work on my background.  I used my watercolour palette which is full of Daniel Smith watercolours.  A little experimenting told me the Azo Nickel Yellow and Kyanite Genuine mix together to make a wonderful green.  I added plenty of splatters – it’s my ‘thing’!

As I was looking through my sequin stash the colour of my cork embellishments caught my eye.  The went with the natural creamy-white watercolour paper and the hues of green perfectly.  I pulled out Wedding Bells, Strawberry Bubblegum and Cork Confetti in chevrons and butterflies.I get the rest very simple; the dandelion heads and painting were enough for me.  I added a simple layer of vellum to the photograph and chose a flair as my title.  I added a sprinkle of my sequins and a couple of butterflies.  I used the chevrons to direct the eye towards the title.

FAB FRIDAY; JUST BE YOU & BEAUTIFUL

Hello!  Welcome!  I seem o be on the black and white photo kick again.  This time I used some black and white elements on the page with just a little pop of color added on along with some black and white papers.  Included on this layout, which I think makes the layout is the Wedding Bells sequins by Spiegelmom Scraps.  Take a look!

I just love how this turned out!  I cut the title and the tag from a cut file from a kit.  Once I did that I used some of the rubber embellishments from my kit.

I love how these sequins look on this layout against the black and white paper and embellishments.  Versa Fine ink is what I used to stamp the elements on the page including the darker circles.

With the title nestled in with some cut files and rubber embellishments, it helps it stand out with just the right amount of color on the layout.

Then I journaled within the circles that are on the layout.
