Water Brush Tutorial

Hi there!

I am sharing a fun tutorial with my friends at ScrapMuch? today, demo-ing a fun way to add colour to stamped images with a water brush.

This technique is super easy, anyone can do it!

 You will need a few simple supplies, an ink pad or two (any water based ink will do) a water brush, and an image stamped with permanent ink like Stazon.

 Your water brush has a chamber that you will fill with tap water prior to using.  With your ink pad closed, give it a gentle squeeze, this will put a small amount of ink onto the lid that you can work with (as shown above). 

 Now, squeeze the centre of your brush to let a little water out of the chamber to moisten the bristles, then use the tip of the brush to pick up some ink from the ink pad lid.

 The fun parts starts now, just fill in the blanks with colour,there are not tricks or techniques, just paint.... so fun! You can work from the centre out if you want the edges a little lighter, or go over a section two or three times to darken the image.  Be careful to let the ink dry in between coats.

 You can use a baby wipe to clean the tip of your brush between colours, or squeeze a little water through the chamber and wipe it off.


 Pick up a second colour....



... and add it to your image.

I used my image to create this little tag, along with a few bits and pieces from my  'junk' drawer.



You can contact ScrapMuch? via email at scrapmuch@rogers.com to get your water brush today!

Thanks for visiting.

Alighing Alpha Stickers Tutorial

Hi there!

Just a quick and easy tutorial for you all today, since I am still on vacay, after all!

If you are anything like me, putting something onto a layout straight is a huge challenge.  I saw this technique and thought I would give it a try.

All you have to do is align a small bit of your alphas stickers on a ruler, using the lines of the ruler as a guide.


Then layout it over your layout, press the top of the stickers onto your page, and gently pull away the ruler.


Now you can add other elements around your alphas, or even more alphas in the same manner.


That's it, that easy!


Thanks for visiting today!

Confetti Polaroid tutorial with our friend Michelle

Hi there!

We have a treat for your today!  My scrappy friend, Michelle McDonald, is guesting for us with a great tutorial!


I will let Michelle tell you a bit about herself....

"Hi! My name is Michelle. I’m happily married to my wonderfully supportive husband John, and we have one daughter Makara. My family feature throughout my work, they are my world. I became addicted to scrapbooking about 2 years ago. There’s so much to learn and techniques to try. I enjoy creating a variety of projects including layouts, cards, tags, off the page projects and the occasional mini album. I have been on a few design teams and made some amazing friendships along the way. I’m not sure if I have a set style, I think it often depends on my mood, the subject, or challenge involved. I find myself doing something scrap related almost every day. I really enjoy the creative outlet, there's nothing more fun and inspiring than to scrap photographs capturing the everyday moments of our loved ones. You can find me at http://michellesscrapdesigns.blogspot.com/"

Here is the fun tutorial that Michelle is sharing with us!

 
"I'm so happy to be sharing a tutorial with you today for creating confetti pockets using Polaroid frame die cuts. They are very easy to do and add such a fun element to your projects. If you don't have a ready made frame you can use one that you've cut yourself with your cutting machine, simply use a piece of cardstock for your back. I hope you give it a try. Thanks for letting me share these frames with you."

Pop on over to  How to Make a Polaroid Confetti Pocket by Michelle McDonald on Snapguide., to see the full tutorial which great images and a write up.

After you scroll through that, check out this gorgeous page that Michelle created using the Confetti pocket that she created..


Than you  Michelle for sharing your tutorial and your gorgeous page with us!  We would love to have you back anytime!  And thank you for the information on Snapguide, I will have to give that a try myself!

And thank you all for visiting!
