Aloha, it's Gia! I don't know if you heard this, but watercolors are a hot trend in paper crafting right now! I love to paint my own scrapbooking layout backgrounds with watercolors and today I am going to show you a resist technique using stamps and embossing powder.
First I stamped a feather pattern with a clear embossing ink pad. Then I sprinkled white embossing powder over the page and tapped the excess off. I used a heat tool to set the embossed feathers. Finally, I painted with my watercolors over the whole page in an ombre pattern with darker pink at the bottom.
Some of the My Mind's Eye Market Street journaling cards in the Glam Camp kit were the perfect complement to my watercolor background with a similar soft watercolor look.
I love the exclusive flair in this kit, and also used one of the extras in the School Store- the My Mind's Eye enamel dots. The arrow die cut was one of the cut files in this kit, and the transparency is from the Studio Calico Wanderlust acetate card set.
I love how painting a background really stretches your supplies and achieves a totally different look. I hope you will give watercolors a try if you haven't already.
