Took another stab at a watercolor background. I sure do enjoy sloshing the paint around, but I must be a bit of a control freak because I tend to want to put the paint where I want it, but I'm pretty sure that control is not supposed to play a big part in this technique...
I just used American Crafts white cardstock instead of watercolor paper this time. Tried out the watercolor on acetate technique.
Step One. Mix up some watercolor on a piece of acetate (in my case I used an old Thickers wrapper)
Step Two. Turn acetate over directly onto to the cardstock
Step Three. Smoosh paint around a bit.
Layered the photo on top of several pieces of plain white tissue paper, then a few pieces of patterned paper and a piece of vellum with gold metallic hearts. (I found a partial sheet of this vellum cleaning out the closet---must have had this for years! So what was old, is new again!) Cut out a few of the gold hearts and then used some more gold chipboard hearts from that Heidi Swapp Project Life kit I picked up a few weeks ago and just a couple of stickers. Really wanted to keep the page light and airy so didn't add much more. Alphas are gold metallic Thickers---love this font and have bought them in gold, red and silver metallic, plus a black and a teal set.
psssssst. It's the weekend....
