To begin, I mixed the Yellow Ochre ColorSparx with water. Then I used a brush to blend in the watercolor onto watercolor paper. I love the ColorSparx Powders because you can add a little or a lot of powder to get whatever shades you want! I found it interesting that the yellow powder looked more green, but when I applied it to the watercolor, it was a pretty yellow! I used a heat gun to speed up the drying time.
You can also use dry paper towels if you do not have a heat gun to dab at the excess ink and wait about twenty minutes for it to dry.
Next, I used ink and a blending brush to add some red tiles using the Tile Texture stencil. It’s easy to use stencils with ink and blending tools. And super simple for those who don’t want to play with modeling paste and other mixed media products.
Once I was satisfied with the background, I grabbed my photos, stickers and die cuts to embellish the layout. I added lots of flowers to make this more of a spring layout. I’m totally loving the yellow background! Super pretty!
Thank you so much for visiting today!
