Hello and welcome to the last Around the World on Wednesday blog hop for 2024. I’m so glad you have been able to join me here in Melbourne. If it’s your first time here I hope you enjoy what you see and are inspired to create something beautiful. Our AWOW team is based around the world and on the second Wednesday of each month we share creative inspiration for you.
Our theme this month is a focus on Watercolour Smooshing technique. This is a fun technique which yields different results everytime. You require some acetate (our clear Window Sheets are perfect) for this. Generally, I’ve created backgrounds with this technique. For today’s card I contained it within the window from the Garden Meadow dies. I wanted it to look like a little scene through the window and I used the technique to create that.
The Garden Meadow bundle comes with lots of cute images to build the scene. I’ve just got this bundle and I was just wanting to use the gum boots. How cute are they? I pretty built they rest of my card around them!
To add some balance and so the window wasn’t just sitting in the middle of nowhere, I added a piece of Soft Sea Foam Designer Series Paper. I left the top of my card clear to show the technique and built up my scene at the bottom.
For all the details on how I created this card, take a look at the video below.
Thank you for stopping by and I’m sure once finish looking through all the ideas you will be getting inky with the Watercolour Smooshing technique. Next on our hop is Danielle Kassing and I can’t wait to see what she has created.
