I joined in the challenge over at Show Us Your Stuff this month. The spring colours of the mood board were delightful.
I was particularly inspired by the very first photograph - it said 'watercolour background'. My handmade item included a gorgeous flair badge from D-Lish Scraps.
Starting with cream cardstock, I used my finger to create circles randomly with gesso. I knew that the circles would then act as a water-resist when I applied watercolour paint.
It's a simple layout but I was proud to create a mixed media background that didn't look I vomited colour all over it (because frankly, sometimes it really does look like that). I was happy that I achieved what I set out to do with this page :)
