Watercolored Die Cuts | Scrapbook Process Video

Hello everyone! Today, I'm sharing a new scrapbook page along with a new process video (you can view it below) on how to create watercolored die cuts using a simple technique that helps prevent scrapbook paper and cardstock from warping. I love the watercolor and mixed media trend that is showing up on scrapbook pages and cards lately, but I really don't care for how it warps and sometimes destroys the paper. This simple technique has made me more willing to pull out my paints and play with them and I bet it will do the same thing for you!

To create this layout, I used the Die-namics Pierced Star Stax by MFT Stamps and the new Baxter collection from Studio Calico. With it's super cute dog theme, the Baxter collection is just perfect for scrapping all the photos I've taken of Lincoln. I just hope you all don't get tired of all the puppy and dog themed layouts!

I really love the wood veneers and puffy stickers that coordinate with this collection!  I also added a couple more puffy stickers from Heidi Swapp and Me & My Big Ideas. I have been eyeing those puffy paw print stickers at Michael's for quite some time and they finally ended up in my basket!

  2. Such a sweet layout, Juliana, and filled with very handy tips! Love that you covered the stars in gesso before water colouring them, and also thought the tip about putting stickers on clear paper first was brilliant!
