These are layouts I did for my article on watercolour, in the August/September issue of Scrapbook Answers.
Watercolour on plastic Yupo paper; the background was crinkled by placing plastic wrap over the wet paint and the green heart was textured by sprinkling salt over the wet paint. Let paint dry overnight and remove plasic wrap/dust off salt once the paint is dry.
Stamping with watercolour. I stamped just about everything I could on this page! :) The blue swirl background, the yellow diamonds on notebook paper, the script stamp, and the letter M.
Watercolour and ink on canvas, block printing, masking for the blocks behind the title.
Here I used masking fluid to mask off the paisley shapes at the top and circles at the bottom; once the background was washed with blue I removed the masking fluid and filled in the masked shapes with ink/watercolour. The title was stamped on the tag in masking fluid and then washed overtop before removing the mask.
It does not show up well in the scan, but the green background is full of fine, sparkly iridescent medium, and the dots along the right are done in iridescent medium too.
Pale, messy watercolour wash on canvas. I painted the metal pieces with watercolour after first priming with gesso.
The background was created using a monoprinting technique with watercolour, acrylic medium, and glass plates.
