Riikka (you are here!)


Here's my page for the hop and the trick is underneath - a three step tutorial for the background. The page is about my daughter's birthday. She turned four and wanted a pink princess birthday so that's what she got. I sewed her a pink dress as the present and she wore it in the party. The cake was pink and decorations were pink. So there wasn't any other color to use for the page than pink.

I used mists and water color pencils in the creation of the background. Underneath are the steps:


1) Start by adding some color to your background and use a mask underneath. That's two things at once - color and a pattern! I used the Circular Shawl stencil in my page and misted the page with two Tattered Angel's mists.

2) Then add some more patterns to customize your paper. I continued with the same style of pattern as I stamped with the Build a Flower Stamp set. Both them and the stencil have a circular shape. Instead of ink I used watercolor pencils to transfer the image. First rubbed the pencil to the stamp and then added a touch of water - worked like a charm! 

3) Finish the background with some doodling. That always gives a personal touch to the creation. If you don't want to draw by your own you can use a stencil to guide your lines! I doodled some mini circles across the page by using the Random Dots Stencil

That's my tip and trick! Hope you enjoyed! And of course my tip is also to embellish the layout by using the Scrap FX chippies!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great time hopping! Your next stop is Song!

    1. Thank you :") I haven't used many different brands of watercolor pencils, but I really like these! When dipped to water the colorant transforms into a really creamy like compared to dry version - gives a lot of possibilities!
