I thought that while sharing my layout with you I'd show you how I used my Art and Graphic twin pens to create it.
As my base I took an A4 piece of watercolour paper (all my layouts are on this size). I scribbled patches of colour on my craft mat and sprayed with some water to make a puddle of colour.
I then swiped and dipped my paper into it randomly to add colour. I let each colour dry on the paper before adding the next so as not to contaminate colours.
To add interest to the background I added some stamping. I coloured directly onto the stamp with my pens. By doing this you can add several colours to the stamp at the same time if you want to but as I only wanted a background image I stuck to using one colour.
I wanted to add some stamped images to my layout so I used a waterproof ink to stamp onto watercolour paper and scribbled some colour from the pens onto a plastic lid. I used my waterbrush to pick up some colour and paint onto the image.
Mixing and blending colours is no problem and here while the paint was still wet I blended in some bright red to the flowers.
I cut out my images and layered them up on the layout.
Here's a closer look at the background stamps again.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and it's inspired you in some way to use the Art and Graphic twin pens.
I also used Artists Sketching pens to add the border and journaling. The stamps used in this tutorial are by Sarah Hurley and are called Woodland Whimsies.
