Journaling with emotions once again

  Imperfection blog

Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. I hope that Spring makes you happy. As I already mentioned I’m really addicted to art journaling and in my last post I started to work with a great mixed media journal from Faber-Castell. With the second attempt I came to the grips with the rest of eight mentioned techniques: layering, misting, stamping and doodling.

Beach fun and watercolors - a match made in heaven

Captured moments detail 2

Hi it's Beck Beattie here again with a fun way to embellish your projects with some fun and colourful flowers.  Summer is just around the corner in the Northern Hemisphere and while it is nearly winter where I am, I'm still trying to live in the warm weather by scrapbooking those summer holiday memories.  

For this layout I thought some bright an colourful beach flowers would be just perfect.  I had the perfect flower die set in the Spellbinders Blooms three die set, but really needed them two toned for the perfect effect.  I decided to reach for my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils for the perfect accent, and here is a video to show you how

 

Hope you enjoyed seeing how I turned the plain die cut flowers into flowers that pop with a little help from Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.  Here are some close up pics of the coloured flowers.

Magic is in the Air!
