Watercolor at AOS

This month Miae is guesting us at Allt Om Scrap. She has been kind enough to make a tutorial on how she use watercolors on her backgrounds. She has done a fantastic and very inspiring film that you must see! Take a look at her tutorial and the design team’s interpretations here.

As I love watercolours so this challenge was a lot of fun to me! I have taken some photos of my background during the process to make my creative process visible. Here is the final result:

The first step was to add watercolour on my white cardstock. I used blue, green and red. I also splashed on some yellow and blue. You can see the watercolours I use on the photo. I use the brush closest to the cardstock (with a fine tip) to add color on the cardstock and the other one to create splashes.

Next step was to stamp with different stamps in different colors.

Finally I added some embellishments. Here are some close-ups:

Thanks for stopping by! It is always a pleasure to read your comments. I do however wonder if you want me to show my creative process like this or only the final result. Please let me know!

Have a wonderful weekend!
