Artsy page I love - Inspired by Wilna

Hi everyone!
Oh! I'm so happy I could squeeze another blogpost in before I left home because this page I'm dying to show it since I made it!! :)
The assignment at was to use the colors of the rainbow. 
I mixed the assignment with my art class I'm taking with Wilna Furstenberg (that you can find here - IT'S AN AWESOME CLASS!! don't miss it!) and it gave me this nice result. :) How do you like it??!

Some of you will wonder how I did the watercoloring. Some will think that I was courageous to draw outside the little jars..... but no, I wasn't really. ;) Actually I painted first and stamped second. lol I then added some butterflies that I cut in velum with my silhouette and that I stitched (call me crazy!) and some tiny hearts that I punched in paper of the same color than the watercolor in the jars. 

The title, cut with my silhouette, some journaling.
Cute black and white pictures and voilà. :)

Oh yes, a few watercolor splatters too. ;)

I mounted the whole thing on some Amy Tangerine colorful paper and stitched all around. :)

And you? Are you getting artsier in your scrapbooking?
If you like what you, and would like to go for it and try it, it really doesn't take much. You can do this layout even with your kids watercolor palette, just like I did. And I didn't use watercolor paper, no, just normal white cardstock from Bazzill. So, what are you waiting for? Get artsy! It's so easy and so much fun!!! :)

Have fun making pretty stuff!

Thank you for a great layout - 2013 but still as relevant today. I was inspired by your layout and have created a layout based on it I have given you a thank you there.
As I was searching for the layout (which I found whilst web surfing) on your blog I am so inspired by all your work.
Thank you again, Margaret Crawford
