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.



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

Here are more close-ups of my finished layout

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. 

 Materials used:

-Dusty Attic "Foliage 15" 
-Lindy's squirts
-Cuts2luv flair
-Watercolor paper
