This week I've just been playing in my watercolor journals. I cut a stencil on my Sizzix eclips2 that had over 1,700 tiny circles on it the size of the registration marks on my Medallion Master Templates and I have been "dotting" everything! I love this instant texture stencil!
The other thing I've been playing with is painting ghost words. Using a flat head brush, it's easy to get lettering onto the page. Some words are brighter than others but I love using the lightest grey to sort of camouflage the writing so it doesn't stand out as much. On the page below, you can see the grey words at the very bottom.
The next step will be to pull out my Modern Calligraphy & Hand Lettering book, by Lisa Engelbrecht, and see if I can have a little more fun with the lettering. (We miss you Lisa!)
I'm just having fun exploring the layering of the watercolors and, of course, adding dots! This is inspiring me to create some other fun stencil designs that I'm thinking I might offer as downloadable files on Etsy for people to use with their cutting machines or to hand-cut. More on that coming soon.
Dots Dots Dots
I haven't decided what I want to make as a focal point on this page yet but I am loving the colors and the autumn/winter feel.
I hope you are all spending Thanksgiving with friends and family and good luck with the food preparations!
