Watercolor Inspiration

Hello friends and happy weekend! Fridays are just the best aren’t they?! We are kicking off the weekend with some beyond lovely inspiration for you! This scrapbook page from Kim makes me want to get out my paints and a canvas! The process she shares and techniques she uses are amazing on a layout, but they can also be translated into a custom painting, card, etc! And since I’m in decorating mode here in our new home, I’m feeling the itch to create some of my own artwork! Thanks for the inspiration Kim!

Hi everyone! I’m sharing a pretty spring inspired layout today! I just love when the new collections come out because the inspiration just flows. For the new BLOOM collection I wanted to play around with new colors and contrast. Most of the time I start with a particular color and then it goes in a completely different direction in the end. I totally loved how the teal mixed with the more blush tones on this page.

I started with a darker color teal watercolor mixed with a little blue and then adding more water, I worked my way around the page, creating a lighter shade. I completed the last corner using a light blush tone acrylic paint. It kind of leads your eyes all around the page.

My attempts at creating a little texture with some stencils didn’t quite go how I wanted so I just added the words “remember” using a little mixed media paste. I followed by adding lots of fun chipboard and stickers from the Bloom collection!
