Hi! Rachel here today with a super quick project to add some fun watercolor cards to your Project Life pages. I love quick and easy watercoloring and I like to have a stash on hand ready to slip into my pocket pages.
Using white watercolor paper (I prefer the bright white variety as it matches all the Elle’s Studio products the best), quickly wet a 3″ x 4″ card with a generous amount of water. I found when doing these that the wetter the paper, the better – the watercolor mixed much easier. Next, wet your brush and pick up some vibrant shades of paint – using colors that will suit the style of your own projects. I carefully adhere these to my paper trimmer with washi tape and left them to dry (I wanted to avoid too much paint pulling towards the edges).
Once the cards are dry you have a perfect background to create some fun accent cards. You can leave them blank and use them whenever you need! I chose to embellish them now with some stamping and products from the Cienna line & the April kit – I know all of these will come in handy for a layout soon as they all fit the style of my album. I kept them very simple – the idea for this project was quick & easy filler cards and these were done in a no time at all.
