Nani Ke Ola Blog Post

Hello!  It's my turn again to share something on the Nani Ke Ola Blog, and I have to say I had a ton of fun getting a little messy while making my layout.  I have shared a couple of layouts using lots of the Pink Fresh Studios Up in the Clouds collection pieces, but today's layout uses some water coloring a chipboard and the Studio Puffs, take a look...


Supplies Used:
Pink Fresh Studios Foil Die Cuts
Um Wow Studio Banner chipboard
Prima Color Blooms Gold Empress
Prima Water Color Pencils - The Basics
Water Color Brush Pen

I started this layout by laying some gesso onto the background paper.  Once that dried I dripped some of the Color Blooms in Gold onto my kraft mat and with water painted it over top.  I also chose to flick the brush lightly to slightly cover the page.  When I knew what photos I wanted to use I knew that I needed to dress my banner up in fun, but soft colors.  To do this I started by covering the front with gesso, and set to dry.  I then colored each pennant with various Prima Watercolor Pencils and painting them with water and a brush.  I then dipped that same brush in more of the gold Color Bloom Spray and went over the whole banner giving it a beautiful sheen in person.  The rest of the layout was brought together by mixing and matching various foil die cuts.

I am entering this into the Simon Say Stamp Monday Challenge: Pastels - my banner is full of pastel colors as are some of the pink embellishments :)

Stop by the Nani Ke Ola Store to grab some of these goodies for yourself, and thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

Happy Crafting!
