Watercolor your World-CTMH Technique Hop

Welcome to my blog. If you are coming from Catherine Nowak, then you are on the right track.This blog is affiliated with the Heartfelt Sentiment group.
I created a scrapbook page using the new watercolors that is available starting this month in the CTMH catalog.
finished size: 12" x12"

I started by cutting pieces of pattern paper ( Zoe Paper Pack) in different width and lengths. I placed them in a random order.

Place your picture on top to make sure the pattern papers shows well. then glue them together with the picture. Do not glue the pattern paper to the 12 x 12 cardstock yet.

Next, you need to mark the out pieces with a pencil so you will know where you will be coloring with watercolors.
Remove picture with pattern paper.  Get your watercolors, brush a water ready, I start by watering the paper first then adding the colors on top. Got crazy mixing colors and add some dripping marks if you like.
When the paper is dry, you may want to stamp randomly around your pencil marks like I did here.
Now,place your picture on top of your watercolor project and add accessories around the outside of your picture. Have fun making it your own.
