Pinkfresh Studio Watercolor Blog Hop


Hello friends!  I'm super excited to be a part of the Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolor Blog Hop!  Check out these gorgeous new paints...aren't they gorgeous?  There are 12 colors, and they are so bold and beautiful.  There are lots of designers taking part in this Hop, and you know that means LOTS of GIVEAWAYS!  So stick around the end of this post for the full list.  You'll want to visit each blog and leave comments to be eligible for the prizes!

But first, here is the layout I created using the new colors and the Be You collection.  I used lots of the patterned papers with the Flutterby cut file from The Cut Shoppe.  I think this is a great color scheme to show how you can really lighten up the watercolors by mixing and matching and adding lots of water.  I used a lot of gesso on the background first and then used some of the blues, aquamarines, black, red, pink and oranges.


I used some of the 6x6 Paper Pad papers under each butterfly.  I stitched through the center of the half circle.  I used some of the chipboard behind the photo and for my title piece.  I sorted through the puffy stickers and ephemera die cuts to create a cluster around the title.


I added lots of foam under the title piece to raise it up off the page.  I tucked in some grey and aqua thread there as well.


Here are a few more close-ups of all the pretty goodness :)






I did film this process, so here's the video if you'd like to check it out:


Now for all the information you need...
