Club Scrap September Artist Team Challenge

Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps September Artist Team Challenge! This month the September challenge is to incorporate watercolor techniques into your projects by using Watercolor paints, pencils or crayons, Gelatos, dye-based inks, etc. I ended up using faber castell's Pitt artist pens, pencils, and a gelato for my flowers and apples.

You should have arrived from Debbie's blog, however if you did not , you might want to start from the beginning at Karen's Club Scrap Blog , that way you won't miss any of the Design Teams Beautiful creations today.

I LOVED making this layout using the new Orchard collection and LOVE all the beautiful design papers, cardstock and embellishment that came in this months kit. I  chose for my layout today to watercolor all flowers, and then the stamped apples and color them with pencils from faber castell. I then used the glass flower technique on all flowers and the apple image. This page was super fun and easy to create. The thing that took the longest would be handmade flowers, and even then it didn't take me long at all. My page was very simple for me as I added 2 photo matts and my embellishments. Love how the apples turned out too using this fun technique. I did add a photo to show you what the flowers look like before using the glass flower technique on them.

 In the photo above you can see how I watercolored them, and then how the look after doing the Glass flower technique on them. LOVE how the color is much deeper and bright.

This is a stunning page, Cheryl and great technique tips.

Gorgeous LO Cheryl and I see you added your signature stitching! What is the glass flower technique? Do your use a melting pot to melt the embossing powder and dip the flowers in or just a heat gun? The flowers really do look like glass!

Cheryl Walker said...

Wendy thank you and the glass flower technique is using the heat gun, I have several tutorials on my blog under the tutorials up at the top of my page. I will add the link when I go down to the computer and update.
Thank you
Hugs Cheryl
