Watercolor Doily Background with Lindy's Squirts

Hi Lindy’s lovers!

Valerie here and I’m coming back today with a brand new project! I had fun with the new Squirts and I created a fabulous watercolor background using doilies. It’s a very simple technique and the result is fantastic. You only need doilies, water and Lindy’s Squirts inks.
The squirts have a thicker consistency than Lindy’s Sprays so this is the perfect ink for this technique since the ink doesn’t leak under the doily.

Basic Process

  1. Use watercolor paper
  2. Place some doilies on your background
  3. Choose 1-2 colors of Lindy’s squirts. I used Polite People Purple and Banff Blue
  4. Paint directly on the doilies with a brush.
  5. Add water to create a watercolor effect
  6. Remove the doilies
  7. Add some drops with squirts on the layout and on the doilies
  8. Place the doilies one over the other and add your photo on it
I’ve created a step-by-step video so you can watch the entire process



Here are more close-ups of my finished layout

March Moodboard for Dusty Attic

Hi Dusty Attic lovers!

I'm back today to share with you my layout of the month inspired by the fabulous March Moodboard. I'm in love with these rich colors. I played with the new Lindy's Squirts and I love it with the Dusty Attic chipboard! Really simple to use and really great result on it.


First, I primed my paper with Clear Gesso, and I use 2 colors of Lindy's Squirts to create a watercolor background. I use a texture paste on "Creative Script Stencil" under the ink. I love the look.

 
 For the "Foliage #1", I try to give a texture on my chipboard with Modeling paste. I just use the modeling and "Geo Star Stencil" on the chipboard. Then, I painted with my ink.




I used the title "The Best Thing About Memories Is Making Them" that I painted with Squirts. I used modeling paste in the engrave box. Otherwise, the words were not visible.







See you soon everyone!
