Time to share another layout I made last week. This one is made using the 1-2-3 Get Scrappy! August challenge board I'm sure you'll love:
With this challenge our 1-2-3 Get Scrappy! challenge blog is celebrating it's first birthday. Woohoo! Happy Birthday!
I want to take this opportunity to thank you our sweet host Melina for the inspiring challenges and all the hard work she's doing for our team and the blog. Being part of this team has been so much fun - I love working and chatting with our amazing group of ladies! ♥ ♥ ♥!
For my layout I chose the left vertical line: Stars - Pen - Crumpled paper.
Stars are stamped on the background, pen is used for doodling, and crumpled paper is white tissue paper I have glued on the background with gel medium.
For the background I used heavy watercolor paper, as I wanted the paper to hold several layers of watercolor without issues. The size of my watercolor paper was bit smaller than 12"x12", so I attached it on a white sheet of standard cardstock.
Before adding the watercolors I used a Prima/Finnabair stencil and gel medium to create flower patterns on the background. Gel medium resists the watercolors which made the look of the watercolor elements more interesting.
The grid texture is drywall tape I bought from the local hardware store.
