I used some white gesso on the background before adding the watercolors. I also used a few Project Life cards on this...I fussy cut that beautiful aqua heart and the "Remember This" tag piece. That yellow strip in the background is from one of the Pinkfresh Studio papers, and the bits and pieces are all from Pinkfresh, Basic Grey and Elle's Studio.
Look at that paper! The colors are just so pretty all mixed together! I wish I had 20 more sheets of it...I'd hoard it forever :D I layered some tangled thread here, and I fussy cut "carefree" from another Project Life card. Kim Watson also helped design the PL Cards, so you won't want to miss those! That blue flower is from the Basic Grey flower pack...another set of gorgeous colors!
I love how adding the Aqua Huez to the leaves made them curl....they look so dimensional like that! Some of the Basic Grey flowers are vellum....like this pink one. Swoon!
These Pinkfresh Studio pieces are soooo much fun! I love the birds. I added a pop dot to this little guy. He looks like he's looking right at the photo :) Those sentiment strips, the "oh happy day" circle and the striped piece behind it are all from Pinkfresh as well.
Here's my process video if you'd like to check it out! Thanks for watching!
Have a great day!!
