Lets get started!!
Here is a list of supplies:
Smooth Watercolor Paper
Photo Editing Tool
The theme this month is Fiesta for Mexican Independence Day and Dia De Los Muertos next month!! I had to do some research for both of these days!! I love learning new things.
One thing that was constant in my reading was the use of color. Color plays such a big part in the Mexican culture and I love it. So I decided to create my own watercolor scrapbook page with the colors that I see in all of my research.
Take a look at the color scheme that I used as a starting point for my scrapbook page.
Here is how this page was created:
Take each color one by one and color them onto the watercolor paper leaving space for blending in between.
Then take a water brush/paint brush and blend the colors moving from top to bottom.
Then cut the dried watercolor paper into smaller 2.75 by 3.50 and place each one in a pocket so that you can see how the layout will look.
Then decide where you want your pictures and embellishments to go.
Here is a closer look at how these pages look:
One pocket has some doodling and fringes.
One pocket has a handwritten journaling on it. Others have sequin.
Another pocket has stickers.
Take another look at the completed layout:
