Textured Watercolor Background with Embossing Powder


Hi Lindy’s lovers!
Valerie here and I’m coming back today with a fabulous watercolor technique. Yes yes another one, haha. I’m in love with watercolor techniques! For this layout, I created a beautiful smooth texture with Lindy’s embossing powders and stamps.

P1170118 

P1170125 

It’s very simple but gives awesome results.
Don’t forget to watch my video to understand the technique properly.



P1170145

Basic Process

  1. Use watercolor paper and choose your colors. I used Pineapple paradise, Emerald Eh!? and Banff Blue
  2. Pick your embossing powder. It’s very important to choose a pale one. The result will be more beautiful. I used Sunset Yellow Orange.
  3. Use Versamark to stamp your background. You can use different floral stamps and create a magical field of flowers. Emboss with your powder.
  4. When it’s dry and your design is complete, add one color of ink at a time. Don’t forget to add a lot of water.
  5. Sponge the excess to create a degraded textured effect.
  6. Let the color dry and give a second layer with the darker one. But not on the whole surface. Add a lot of water and sponge the excess another time.
  7. To finish, add some drops of Frozen Jack Frost spray

Here are some close-ups of my finished layout.

"Choisis le Bonheur" for Dusty Attic


Hello Dusty Attic fans! 
Valerie's here to share another layout with you with Dusty Attic products. 


I created my background with "Dusty Attic Cobblestone stencil" and the new finnabair texture paste Golden Nugget. I loveeeeee this texture paste! I added a little bit of color with Lindy's squirt and water.



 I used the word "Choisis le bonheur" of the "French Mini caption #7" and I used Finnabair wax to color it. In the engraved words, I used Nuvo mousse with a spatula.



 I used the awesome assortiment of "Cogs&Gears" that I colored with Finnabair wax and I added some texture paste Golden Nugget.




Materials used:

-Dusty Attic "Cogs&Gears"

See you soon! xx Val

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.

P1170070 

P1170072

Basic Process

  1. Use watercolor paper
  2. Choose 1-3 colors of Lindy’s squirts. I used Polite People Purple , Loonie Toonie Teal and Banff Blue
  3. Add water on the section would you like to create your watercolor
  4. Add one color at a time and add lot of water
  5. Create some splatters with your ink and water
  6. Let dry without heat gun
  7. When it's dry, add another layer of ink here and there. No to much!!
  8. Add once again splatters with inks and water
  9. At the end, add some drops of Frozen Jack Frost spray
I’ve created a step-by-step video so you can watch the entire process

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.

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.

P1170037 

P1170028

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
