Watercolor background layout | Cristina Sales

Hi beautiful Pinkfresh Studio community, Cristina here today to show you a new page I made using the really amazing Celebrate collection featuring Altenew. I decided to focalize my composition on the papers using that beautiful new cut file, you can find it here, because there are so many patterns useful for a fussy cutting and I wanted to use it in this way for a monocromatic effect.

I started making the watercolor background using the watercolor paint, bubble gum, mixed with water and spread on the white cardstock using an acetate piece. You can add different shades of color adding more or less water to have an hot or soft effect. When the paper is dry you can add other color to create different shades of the same color.

I fussy cut all the flowers by the patterned paper progress and this story and I chose only those ones who had the same pink color shade that perfectly matched with the watercolor background.

Using a foam double side adhesive I added all of them all around my pic and the leaves cut file and I totally fell in love for them.
I cut my title using the perfect adore alpha die in a white dress because I would love the color and the flowers were the first things that would catch the attention.
To complete my composition I added some drops of fairy dust ink cubes mixed with water and spread on the sheet using a watercolor brush.

To show you the making of this page I provided a process video ready for you on the Pinkfresh Studio yt channel and here it is:
That's it so thank you so much for joining me today and have a good holidays, we will meet in september with many new release ready to inspire you for the fall season and over.
Bye bye.

I love the water color looks of the flowers. I think they look more real with the colors picked for the flowers. They could be used for cards, too! Thank- you!🙂💜
