Scrapbooking How-to: Creating Watercolor Rings
Create easy watercolor rings to frame embellishments or decorate your layouts.
Whenever I am creating and layering with a repeating shape design (like the circles on this layout) I like to find several ways to create that shape. Most of the time I rely on paper, stitching, embellishments, and punches. I just like having a variety of different textures and looks when I layer shapes.
When it comes to circles I like to mix it up by using a solid circle and a ring shape. Rings are great for framing smaller circles or other shapes or designs you might want to include.
On this particular layout I created rings using watercolors and the plastic lid to a bottle of mist.
They are sooooooo easy to make!
All you need is:
• liquid watercolor
I used a plastic lid from a bottle of mist, but you could use a lid from pretty much anything.
• palette or dish
Step #1 - Add a drop of watercolor to the palette.
Step #2 - Add water to the watercolor.
The amount of water you use will determine the shade of color you will end up with. If you want a darker color, use less or no water. If you want a lighter color, use more water.
Step #3 - Dip the lid into the watercolor.
Step #4 - Stamp the lid onto your project.
See! So easy and such a fun way to frame embellishments and decorate your layouts.
