Watercolor technique with layers of ink for Lindy's stamp gang

Hi Lindy’s lovers!
Valerie here and I’m coming back today with a fabulous watercolor technique with layers. This technique is very interesting with Squirts because once dry, it is permanent and therefore doesn't mix with other layers that I add.
Don't forget to watch my video to understand the technique.

  2. Choose 1-3 colors of Lindy’s squirts. I used Polite People Purple , Loonie Toonie Teal and Banff Blue

Pastel layout with Dusty Attic inspired by MTW April challenge

Hi everyone!
Here is my lastest layout with Dusty Attic chipboard. I got inspired by the April Challenge on More Than Words blog.
I used fabulous PASTEL colors like the little chicks in the picture. To illustrate the inspiration word, I choosed a picture of my boy when he was a BABY.


First of all, I primed my background with clear gesso. I create some texture with modeling paste stenciled on my paper. After that, I primed all of my chipboard with white gesso and I glued all of my pieces. 
Then, I created a watercolor background with my Lindy's ink.

Dusty Attic April Moodboard

Hi Dusty Attic lovers!
I'm back today to share with you my layout of the month inspired by the fabulous April Moodboard. 
Fabulous juicy colors! I love it!

Here is the gorgeous moodboard for this month

I created my background with the new Lindy's Squirts. 
Don't forget to use watercolor paper for the good result. And let dry slowly.


I used the fabulous chipboard set "Foliage 15" that I embossed with 2 colors of embossing powder. 2 or 3 colors gives better result and more depth.




 I really love use the black chipboards. really simple to use, just add directly on your layout.

-Dusty Attic "Foliage 15"

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

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!
