Cross Canada Blog Hop - Creating with Watercolor

Hello and welcome to CTMH's Cross Canada Blog Hop. This week we are featuring artwork created by using Watercolors.

If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can start at the beginning with Michelle's Blog as she has the complete list. If you came here from SCRAPBOOKING WITH CHERYL you are in the right place. Now on to my project:

I used the water paints to create this layout. On a cut sheet of watercolor cardstock I masked the areas I wanted to keep white with some washi tape and cut strips of cardstock. Then I painted using different colors and blending them together.

I wanted to try and match the colors of my daughter's hat and pajamas with the background. Then I took some of the blue that would match the play doh and sprinkled it in bunches where my photos would go. I did it by wetting my paintbrush a lot, picking up the blue paint and then taping my paintbrush against my finger to make it splatter. 

There are so many possibilities using the water paints, tips and techniques that can be explored. Try to think outside of the box!
