Beautiful Life – Aga’s layouts with watercolour flowers

Hello, my dear crafters!
Today, I have for you two delicate layouts made using my Compose Your Life collection of papers.

Beautiful Life

I created my base on an 8×8 watercolour paper.
I wanted to create delicate puddles and splashes of Tattered Angels color – they beautifully coordinate with the rest of the project.

 The most time consuming part of the project is watercoloring the elements; with Tattered Angels mists, it is also the most rewarding part of the process.
TTIP: To make your flower go a long way, you can cut them in halves and build up your layers by hiding the cut-out edge. It’s an easy way to have more elements to work with.
I used the following products:
Compose Your Life – Paper Flower Pieces
Compose Your Life – Bring Out Your True Colors
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Mardi Gras and Merlot Gold
Tattered Angels Simply Sheer – Imperial Blue

Be Gentle

It’s a delicate layout with a vintage feel to it.
I have added a bit of color to it by watercoloring the flowers fussy cut from one of the Compose Your Life papers.
The paper I used as my base is very neutral and doesn’t clash with any other papers or colors. You can make it match any color-theme you have in mind – just your mists and imagination.

TIP: I have used matt varnish on the watercolored flowers to stop the mists from losing color and oxidising.I used the following products:
Compose Your Life –Let Tiny Buds Bloom
Compose Your Life – Flower Pieces
Compose Your Life – Bring Out Your True Colors
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Taffy, Black Cherry, Dried Lavender
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam – Cup Cake
Tattered Angels High Impact – Pink
Gesso clear, coarse Grain modelling paste from Renesans, my own homemade stencil
There are so many ways in which you can use the papers.
I hope the layouts Ive shared with you today have given you some ideas.
Have a great crafty day!!!
