Here's a page I made for an article on watercolor over at Get it scrapped.
It's about my feelings when I'm watching my daughter nap in the afternoon. You the feeling that you should do more with her, love her more, enjoy her more..... I wish I wouldn't stress so much, and stress her as much...
I wanted the page to be very soft. I wanted it to feel like a dreamy background, with stars and gold and some resist embossing.
The resist was hard to make because I really couldn't see a thing I was drawing with my embossing pen on the watercolor paper. I drew some lines and some stars.
I then added some gold stitching and gold stars. I love the result of these gold stars sewed down.
I also added some drops of the gold lamé color shine from Heidi Swapp.
The white embossing in the yellow watercolor almost doesn't show. It shows a bit more when you see it in real. You can see some tiny gold glitters from the gold color shine.
I added lots of layers from velum to cardstock envelopes, Project Life 3x4 cards, patterned papers...
And I added extra stars on top of the picture.
Thanks for looking!!
