More water colours....

Hi again!
I thought I would show you another easy way to incorporate using the cool "Crayola water colour paint set" that is in the latest "A Piece of cake design cupcake kit" in your layouts!

                                      This time it as easy as painting squares!!!

To start draw yourself a grid, I used grey lead pencil  first. Then inside each grid square start by choosing a colour and then you will need to slightly tilt your page forward while with that wet brush you make a stroke horizontally the length you want it. Now move your brush down so that it is directly underneath the last stroke but just touching the above one and do another stroke. Now you can add more paint each time or just use the brush with water. This means even brush stokes.Keep going until your square is complete. The watercolour will always stop at the end of each stroke ( no drips). If it pools at the bottom you can carefully wipe with an edge of a wipe or tisssue.                
When your squares are dry go in and add your black pen lines. Then smear some white paint, texture paste, or gesso randomly over your painted squares. I use an old credit card to do this.
I have then used a "Bo Bunny Scratched stamp" and stamped some randomly on top of my squares with archival permanent ink. I then also used a dotted stamp with some orange stazon ink.

Next add your photo. Add in a strip of the washi tape from the kit. Cut from your papers the "captured" word and I have torn a piece of dotted lines from the "pebbles inc. stickers" and added that also. Also from your patterned papers cut the the word today and add to your layout.
Add in some of the wooden veneer circles and text circles. Punch out some small stars from your various patterned papers that match your colours you painted with and add those.

Add your title. I have used the sticker words from the "jilliebean soup" stickers in the kit and then wrote the rest as journalling. Finish off with some doodling and there you go! Another easy way to use water colour paints on your layout! You could paint any shapes/ designs you like...have a go! It's fun!!!!

Hope you give it a go! Eb xxx
