Hello, Altenew fans!

It’s Zinia here and today I’m back to share with you a really fun and colorful layout I created using the new Watercolor Brush Markers and some of my favorite stamps and dies.

Custom Background Pattern using Watercolor Brush Markers @ziniaredo @altenewllc #altenewllc #altenew #ziniaredo #stamping #scrapbooking #scrapbook #mixedmediaI used the watercolor brush markers to create a custom background for my layout. The colors I used are Moss, Limeade, Emerald, Evening Gray, Autumn Blaze, and Warm Sunshine. I added strips of color on my background in thicker and thinner strokes for variation. Then I used a water brush and went over everything to soften down the colors and let everything blend together.

To decorate my page, I decided to use pieces of the Botanical Garden Stamp Set. This is one of my all-time favorite sets and I thought the outline images were perfect for this layout.

I cut a strip of 12″ cardstock and placed it in the middle of my design. Since my background was so bright, I needed some white space to place my photo and title.

Then I simply placed my photo on that white strip and stamped my title from the Playful Blooms Stamp Set.

To finish my design, I added a few black splatters of ink on the white area and white splatters on the colorful areas of my background.
