Hi Everyone! Julia here. I really like watercolor painting because even though it has a lot of personality it is very easy to use material for beginners too. In this blogpost I would like to give you some basic ideas how to use it on your scrap layouts. Mona is also a big fan of the JaneDavenport – Bright palette, so she made you a color palette as a little help: When sometimes we buy a scrap treasure, we don’t even have an idea how many opportunities it has. Just take a look at this gorgeous Jane Davenport – Bright Watercolor Palette. It has great colors, you got a mixing palette which I simply adore and it has 12 beautiful colors. However if we take a closer look it contains so much more. I made a little color chart from the Bright palette by pairing every color and painting them to a watercolor paper for a better transparency. I mixed every color pair 1:1 and so I got 80 nicely saturated colors. What I love in this palette …
I am so very excited to share with you my first layout as a creative team member, on Pink and Paper’s blog. To created this page I used the adorable Carousel Collection from Crate Paper – Maggie Holmes. I adore the fresh, vivid colors and happy figures of this collection! First I made a messy painted, blue background on a transparent sheet and I glued it down on „Uplifting „ 12×12 paper from the collection, then I placed my photo. After I found the place to my title, I started to embellish my layout using the Chipboard Stickers and Ephemera Die Cuts from the same collection. (Yes! The striped buttons are from the Ephemera Pack too!) To balance my page I added some black and white strips on the top of my layout. As a final touch, for a little eye catching detail I have used almost all of the stars from Carousel collection. Love, P.J.
Finally I had time to upload this blogspot. I don`t want to go into details how I made it because I think the pictures speak for themselves. Today’s all about visual inspiration, just a very short introduction: The backgroung I made with acrylic paint and after I used Whipped Spackle by Faber Castell through the Nőicsizma Design stencil. Once the Whipped Spackle was dry, I added Wilna´s cute little bears and some embellishments from the Heart Day Collection. And from now on, it´s truly only visual inspiration comes: Love, P.J.
This mood board was a real challenge for me! When I saw it I thought that was so beautiful, but what would I do with these colors??? What most inspired me was the big image with the floppy disks. I haven’t got any products in these colours, so I decided to make a painted background based on the mood board. First I put everything on the painted background, but it seemed too much for me. Than I cut my background in half, I cut out some speech bubbles and I added a few cristals, splatters and enamels.– Thanks Sharmaine for the challenge! Love, P.J.
My new canvas inpired by Nicole Pletts. I’m not entirely satisfied how it turned out, but this is a step forward, isn’t it?
After an unfortunately flood from the neighbors – I had to thrown out the furniture too, – I decided to rearrange my scraproom. It’s very small, only 1 square meter. I was crazy about polka dot wall for ages. First I painted the wall in white, than I cut out a polka dot stencil with my Silhouette. Adjusting the stencil on the wall, I made my dots with archival ink. For this time I decided to have a black and white – blue color palette for the room, so I assembled the furniture and I bought some light blue boxes as additional storage. I have to confess, I’m very happy whit my new scraproom.
