Back to why this was a bit of a challenge for me...my first cardstock I actually threw out because it was just horrible. I've never completely thrown out the foundation of a layout, but I just had to this time around. I ended up with too much gelatos on my page (this is the first layout that I've made with watercolors as the main technique) and it was a mess and not in a good way. Luckily, I was only working on the background, so it was only paper I threw out. Then I remembered my inspirational scrapbooker, and then everything shot off from there.
Now, if you want to play along with Kelly and I in our trendy challenge featuring watercolors, please link of your project in the comments section. You can link up in my comments or hers. We'll be giving away a small prize (to be updated on this post later, so please come back) to a reader that plays along! You have until next Thursday, October 17th to link your project up.
Okay, now go check out Kelly's take on the challenge. I love that she didn't make a traditional layout, but more of an inspirational piece to hang in her scrap room. Love it! I actually don't have anything hanging in my scrap area, so Kelly's definitely inspired me to create something!
