Watercolor layout using ink cubes | Cristina Sales

Watercolor layout using ink cubes | Cristina Sales

Hi friends Cristina here with a new page finally using the very lovely brand new collection "Oh what fun", the newest christmas collection by Pinkfresh Studio. So fun designs and colors to decorate you own memories during the christmas days.
I decided to make a watercolor layout using the ink cubes that perfectly allow me to follow the the color designs used making the right shades I wanted to have.

I chose a photo that reminded me a lot of Christmas because it is linked to a brand that makes excellent candles and that I often give as a gift because they are available in many fragrances, many perfect for the Christmas theme. 

Among the various patterned papers available for this collection I chose to use merry everything from which I fussy cut the pink and blue frames to create with them a kind of wall decoration using the white cardstock as if it were a wall.

For the watercolor background I used the ink cubes in shades of light blue and light pink, starry night and heartbeat, mixed with water on an acetate sheet then spread on the white cardstock using another acetate piece used as a brush.

If you want see more about this page I provided a process video at the bottom of the post to follow me during the making.
When the paint was dry I started my composition using all the totally amazing embellishments that this collection is full.

As a final touch I added some drops of gesso mixed with water.

Here is the process video: 

 Thanks for stopping by and see you next time.
