Hi Lindy’s lovers!
Valerie here and I’m back today with a really easy summer tone scrapbook layout perfect for beginners. I created a step-by-step for you to demonstrate how to use different colors on a watercolor background.
I used 3 colors (South Shore Sand, C’est la vie Cerise, Kissin’ Kenickie Coral)
As usual, I started with a thin coat of clear gesso over my patterned paper. Now, I can use my sprays – spray on one color at time.
It’s very important to let each color dry or use the heat gun to dry the surface after each color.
I use a paper towel to sponge the excess liquid in between each color.
I created some splashes with a brush to create a water drop effect.
When your background is done, you can continue your layout with the addition of some textures. I used a piece of cheesecloth to add a beautifully fluffy texture.
After that, I mixed art stones and 3D matte gel and I applied the mixture on my layout.
The 3D gel will be clear once dry.
This is my finished layout.
Here are some close-ups of my finished page.
