This month has caught me out a bit and I haven't had time to do many challenges. So with a free morning I have attempted the Scrapbookit challenge. Fun Frames and Flairs. I have covered the Fun and Frames. Wasn't sure of the flairs. But you know the saying "in for a penny."
I have been wanting to try a bit of watercolour painting on my backgrounds for a while. So have given it a go on this page. Using a stencil as my outline and I then used water colour pencils for my colours. I really love the way the colours blend and flow together. Then I added some stamping and spritzing to add depth to the background. The main issue is the page warping from the water used. After some research I wet the pages and taped them down and then lay them flat to dry. I put them on the floor in front of the heater and if you look really closely you may be able to see my grandsons foot prints across the page.
All things considered I was happy with the outcome and I will definitely try this method again....hopefully without the footprints.

I hope you enjoy my page.
Cheers and Happy Scrapping.  Heather B.
