For my Scrapbook Nerd technique week I decided to try my hand at some watercolor techniques I have seen in videos and make some PL 3x4 journaling cards.
I tried 2 different ways. The first was using Gelato's.
I rubbed the Gelatos over the paper and then added water and used my fingers to rub it in.
You could also use a brush but I found my fingers easier. I wanted an ombre effect so I started heavy and lightened it up as I went down the paper.
Then to finish it off I added a sticker from the Crate Paper Notes and Things collection.
For the second attempt I used an old set of watercolor paints that were my sons.
I did the same ombre technique and started heavier at the top then added more water to the color as I moved down the paper.
I really love this look and it was really easy to do.
I think this one is my favorite.
Thanks for stopping by.
