Hello Sassy Friends! It's Leanne here today and I am sharing a tutorial on a layered filler card. Have you noticed the water colour trend lately? I thought I'd share a technique which embraces the idea and it has so many Project Life possibilities. It's pretty simple to create and lots of fun too!
Time to break out your art supplies!
step 1. Gather your supplies:
Dear Lizzy Serendipity Hello Honey patterned paper
Amy Tangerine Stitched Interlock patterned paper
cotton thread (white)
step 2. Spray the surface of your watercolour paper with a light mist of water. With a wet brush, apply your selected paint colours to the paper and watch them blend. For a softer colour, apply more water to the paper with your brush or alternatively, for stronger colours apply more layers of paint.
step 3. Once the paper has been allowed to dry, use the metal doily die and cut out the shape. Make certain to remove all the intricate excess pieces to allow the doily to be showcased.
step 4. Trim the Dear Lizzy patterned paper (top right corner - pink and yellow confetti) to 3"x4" and layer the doily on top. Once you're happy with the position, adhere to the patterned paper.
step 5. Choose a turquoise framed label sticker and adhere to the lower edge of the doily. Add some cotton thread for texture.
step 6. Now select the large butterfly from the Dear Lizzy Ephemera pack and adhere to the top of the layers. note: The butterfly will also help secure the cotton thread.
step 7. For the finishing touches, punch out several butterfly shapes from the Amy Tangerine Stitched patterned paper and add to the filler card. Now complete the card by adding two enamel dots to the right edge of the label sticker.
Obviously, the watercolour effect can be achieved with any die and the same process as shown above. Just think of all the awesome possibilities to use them in your PL2015 spreads! Thanks for joining me here today..x
