I am back today to show those extra layouts I made while inspired to watercolor!
For this layout, I made those V shaped hearts in green shades to match my photos. They basically make out a little photo mat. It can be that easy!
Here is just a closer look. Our former team memberChristine Newman shared a great layout using watercolors to make her background here. I made mine just on freehand, but she shows an exellent example on how to use a stencil.
For my second layout I painted thin circles and also added a few colored in circles. When I was finished it looked like it need a little more, so I stamped a small star randomly ontop of the circles. Before I added my photo I journaled on my typewriter. A little banner and that rub-on (awesome) were the finsihing touches!
I hope that this has inspired you to make something fun with your watercolors! I am spending the weekend with my nieces and nephew and am planning a watercolor session!

I then used my 1 inch circle punch to punch out the circles I then used for my layout. Easy peasy! Oh and wouldn´t this be a great way to use your kids artwork on a page?! I think yes!
Last year I shared another easy way to use your watercolors to make scrapbooking supplies, go check that out too!
