Life is beautiful Watercolor Layout by Sanderijn de Bruin

Hi everybody, it’s Sanderijn here, for the very first time. Boy am I excited to finally show you the watercolor layout that I created for Lindy’s!


I have used the wonderful Starburst sprays to create the background for this page.

In the art of watercolor artists often use heavy watercolor paper and wet it thoroughly with a brush, and then brush watercolors onto the paper to create landscapes – this is called Wet-in-Wet. I got the idea to use the Starburst sprays (a fluid watercolor) and let the colors move and blend in a certain way.This way you get a vivid, colorful background paper, that actually needs no processing afterward. I made a video for you to see how this technique goes.
My butterflies are all stamped and embossed with Lindy’s wonderful embossing powder Midnight teal. I actually have some older jars, but they don’t seem to get empty, no matter how many times I use them!
Here are a few close up photos so you can see the colors.
And here is the video so you can see exactly how I created this layout.

Thank you so much for taking the time to watch my watercolor layout.
With love, Sanderijn
