Water colors in scrapbooking

Water colors in scrapbooking

Today is it a new technique challenge at Swe Scrapbooking where you should use water colors in your scrapbooking, on layouts, cards or other. Watercolour is very popular to use right now and I understand why. The special with watercolour paint is there way to merge together when you paint two colors next to each other, it gives a very nice effect. The fine nuances and beautiful transitions you can get makes them a favorite of my paint media.

As inspiration for today’s challenge, I have made a scrapbooking layout with the title Love this.

The photo is from our summer trip to England in 2015 where I and Sally standing and admiring the view in front of a very colorful flowerbed in the small village of St Agnes. Above and below the photo I stamped a flower border with a lovely stamp from Memory Box and colorized it with watercolors.

Both the pink background and the cut-out flowers to the right of the photograph has been colored with watercolors.
