The photo was taken last June when we traveled back from New York to Amsterdam and you guessed it right ... we had a couple of hours delay. We didn't mind at all and spent a couple of fun hours at the airport, drinking Starbucks and having our nails done.
Here are a few close-ups of my page:
And I thought I'd show you how I created the pinkish watercolor background:
1. I chose 2 different pinks from my Gelatos box and drew a few lines on my cutting mat:
3. Next I used a plastic package from one of the items in the kit and placed this on top of the wet Gelatos mix:
4. I placed this plastic bag on my background paper, thus transferring the pink watercolor paint. What I really like about this technique is that it doesn't make my paper so terribly wet and because of that it doesn't wrinkle all that much!
5. This last step I repeated several times until I was satisfied with the result:
Fun right? Normally my pages tend to be rather "clean" except for a few paint drops here and there, but once in a while I like to use a bit more (watercolor) paint.
And last but not least, let me show you a photo of the October "Harmony" kit:
