Sit, Scrap, and Relax!

A peek into my scrappy life.

Today is…

Today I am sharing a layout with a fun watercolour background.

2015-05-18 13.18.42

The triangles are done with heavy gesso through a stencil. Once dry, I used watercolour pencils to add colour and some stamping to add texture.  I added more watercolour around the triangles and I just love the effect! I think I’m going to have to try that again with a different stencil for sure.

I am playing along with the 13 Arts Challenge #30- “Let’s Take a Selfie”. The selfie is of me and my daughter last week on a little outing to see some ducks at the pond.

I am playing along with the Words & Paintery May challenge, to use lilacs and pinks. Not a colour combo I use often, but it definitely worked with my photo!

And finally, I am playing along with Frosted Designs “All About Mom” challenge, as this layout showcases my relationship with my daughter.

Thanks for stopping by!
