How to Create a Watercolor Background with Valerie

Hi Lindy’s lovers! Today, I would like to share a beautiful technique to create this pretty watercolor background using Lindy’s sprays. I used the color combination from the special January color set.


Basic Process

  1. Cover page with gesso
  2. Add Modeling paste through stencil and let dry
  3. Use a brush to add Lindy’s colors over modeling paste (start with lightest color) on all 4 sides of the page
  4. Add some drips and drops
  5. Emboss chipboard embellishments
  6. Add embellishments to page


The embossing powder matches the background so beautifully.


I’ve filmed a short video to show you my process.
