July Watercolor Challenge – Pinkfresh Studio

I am so thrilled to take part in the Pinkfresh Studio July Challenge!  The challenge this month is watercolors!  Working with the brand new Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolors is such a joy, the colors are so vibrant and pretty!

Be sure to visit the Pinkfresh Studio blog and join in on the challenge!  There are prizes!! YAY!!

I gathered the watercolor bottles that are selected for the challenge and a white piece of cardstock.  I added clear gesso to my cardstock to help with the water I would be adding!  I also cut a floral wreath on my silhouette from white cardstock.

 

 

I decided to add watercolor under the wreath and leave it white.  It is a great way to have dimension and mixed media on your page!  I had not adhered the wreath, so I just lifted up the areas I wanted to paint under so I would get the colors in the right spots, the back of my cut file got a little wet but nothing it couldn’t handle.

Once I had the paint all added I found a spot for my photo and added embellishments.  The “moments” title is from The Mix #2 as are the sweet puffy hearts.  Once I started adding hearts I couldn’t stop so they ended up all around the wreath!  I kept the hearts in similar watercolor areas.
