La Vie En Rose Scrapbooking Workshop

Love, love love this paper pack its super versatile.  The black and white pattern papers can be used with any accent colour.  I used the CTMH watercolour paints to feature a few techniques.
Let's take a look.

CTMH La Vie En Rose
 Here I used a paper doily as a stencil, I mixed a few colours and daubed the paint through the opening of the doily.By extending the watercolour behold the outer edges of the doily, you really seek the entire shape.  Here's a closer look.

Here following technique, is using a pre-cut stencil with a quote or phrase, add versa ink in the negative spaces, heat emboss the words then using watercolour brush across the words creating a washed look.  Once dry, trace each letter using a black journaling pen.  To see hope this is done please click here. I also just the new Thin Cuts to further embellish this layout.


So if pink is not your thing then go ahead a pick the colour of your choice, here I used Lagoon.  Again the black and white pattern paper is great with any colour you select.  The watercolour technique featured here a simply gradient.  



Try one of these water colour technique, you'll really love it!
