Watercolor Paper Layouts

I few years ago, I started playing around with watercolors. I taught myself somethings and really enjoyed it. I haven't painted in a while but had a great idea. I wanted to scrap some of my anniversary pictures but didn't have the right colors of paper to work with.

So why not paint the paper?  And that is what I did! All the background papers were painted to match the colors in the pictures. I really had fun, too.  Also, I printed each of the large pictures and added my journaling on top. Another cool idea.

Take a look!

Heat embossed the words at the top and then added blue ink.

Stamped, hand cut and even heat embossed the white hearts.

Added pop dots to the letters for dimension.

Loved adding these rub-on words to the pictures.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

    I like that you painted the papers to match your photos.
    I like to ink mine..even though I have enough paper to start my own store..I never seem to have the exact match, teehee.
