Watercolor Mini!



Hi everyone! I have been on a mini kick recently! There are so many adorable and beautiful paper collections out there I feel that I must use them all! Mini's are one of my favorite things to create and this one is no exception!


This little adventure began when I spotted Glitz Design 'Wild and Free' and was immediately captured by its gorgeous hues and watercolor designs.  Plus, it's got lots of hearts in the collection and I'm a sucker for hearts! The 'Titles and Accents' sticker sheet has great graphic stickers too- lots of arrows, chevrons and feathers!

The chipboard pages were cut out in different shapes and covered with the stunning 'Wild and Free' 6x6 paper designs. Plus I used the journal and picture cards form the coordinating 'bits and pieces' and 'whatnots' to create extra pages and journaling spots in my mini. I created a bit of an interactive book by sewing some of the cards onto my pages and creating a page within a page. All the more room for cute pics and writing!









I wanted a lot of watercolor effect in the mini so I created my own watercolor ribbon by dying twill using mists! Messy but fun! I also used the mists and masks on some of the larger pages.

 
 

Please check out this quick little video I made showing all of the pages in this sweet mini!



Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
