Watercolor Smooshing


Watercolor smooshing.


Doesn't smooshing sound fun???



It IS.


IT REALLY IS.




I inked up a clear container with Papertrey's Hawaiian Shores and New Leaf...


used a waterbrush to swirl the colors...


and I SMOOSHED watercolor paper on it.


 I used The Sweet Life dies to cut roses, and only stamped the details~no need to mess with that beautiful marbleized color.


The unique pattern of the paper is fantastic...I'll definitely use this technique again.
 

The left over paper was sooo pretty, I had to use some for the corners.

  4. Smooshing splendid, Marlena! You've given those marbleized colours centre stage! Gorgeous. As for smooshing...I tried. I failed. Gahhh....Perhaps I'll give it a go again, but really...How pathetic! I need to watch the PTI video again (and again and again). You've given me 'try once more' incentive.
    Hugs~c
