Watercolor Splats

I wanted to play around with ink, so I played along this week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge: Watercolor Splats:

I mixed my water with silver Gelato before dropping it onto my inked background. A fun and easy technique to get inky!
Thanks for visiting!

Fun With Watercolors and Vellum

Hi! I hope your weekend is doing great! I just wanted to share another card having fun with watercolors and vellum. I made it for the Mama Elephant Photo Inspiration Challenge:

Here is my second take:

Love the Origami set! The trace is a stamp from the Up And Away set. I used the die from the Landscape Trio set to die-cut some vellum. I so love the stitched look the die creates! Because I needed a German sentiment, I used this stamp from another brand. It says "stay the way you are". It is heat-embossed with clear embossing powder, then I created my background with watercolors.
I hope you like it! Have a great Easter Weekend!!

Two Layouts

I am sharing two layouts today. The first one is a grid layout using the Webster's Pages/Adrienne Looman Our Travels collection:

Heute zeige ich zwei Layouts. Das erste ist ein Rasterfeld Layout, das ich mit der Webster's Pages/Adrienne Looman Our Travels Serie gemacht habe:

These are some photos from our trip to a wildlife park last year. So fun and full of new adventures for my girl. I started with those square cards from a piece of pp from that collection and just printed the photos the same size. Easy and great to get a lot of photos onto a layout.
The next layout has been sitting here for a while. I made it last month with the Crate Styleboard collection, but I just couldn't manage to get a great photo of it. Now I gave up. Here it is:

Das sind Fotos von einem Ausflug in den Wildtierpark letztes Jahr. Echt toll und voller neuer Abenteuer für meine Tochter. Ich habe als Startpunkt die quadratischen Kärtchen von einem der Designpapiere genommen und meine Fotos in der gleichen Grösse gedruckt. Einfach und effektiv, um viele Fotos auf einem Layout unterzubringen.
Das nächste Layout liegt hier schon eine Weile. Ich hatte es letzten Monat mit der Crate Styleboard Serie gemacht, aber ich habe einfach nicht geschafft, ein gutes Foto davon hinzubekommen. Jetzt geb ich es auf. Hier ist es:

I was inspired by Wilna's video, using watercolors with rub-ons. The gold rub-ons of the collection are so pretty!
Ok, that's it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Ich habe mich von Wilna's Video inspirieren lassen, in dem sie Aquarellfarben mit Rub-Ons verwendet. Die goldenen Rub-Ons der Serie sind so schön!
Ok, das wars für Heute. Danke vielmals fürs Besuchen!
