we want to share with you what we have made! every day on the PAPERHAUS blog there will be amazing inspiration and tutorials so be sure to stop on by everyday in june!

and here is a SUNNY project from me - 

"WALKING ON SUNSHINE"


i started with white cardstock, 12" background mask and Art GRIP® Aquarelles: YELLOW (#770111). i used five different colors to create my dotted frame. 

after i was done drawing, i added just water to get this amazing watercolor painting effect. the best thing about the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils is that the watercolor pigments dissolve completely and are permanent, waterproof and lightfast when dry. so you can add layer upon layer of different colors, media and textural accents and your colors won't change even a bit.


after the water was dry, i used another mask with a floral motive and Gel Medium (#770303) to give extra dimension to my background paper.
