‚Blue Note’ watercolour die cuts :: tutorial!

Hi! It’s been a year till I start working with Studio Calico at it was the best year in my scrapbooking life – thank you for your support everybody! What can I do to repay you – I think the best idea is prepare a step by step tutorial with the Blue Note‚  Scrapbook Main kit!   ha! I hope you will enjoy.
I decided to make a blue/navy layout with a touch of red and some white space – all of these colours you can find in December kits. You won’t need nothing more than a few things from the Scrapbook Main and ‚Blue Noteprintables to create simmilar project as I made.

I used a diamond shape cardboard as a mask. To get a proper shade of blue mist I added a few drops of ultramarine ink to the bottle of Mister Huey’s ‚Bazinga’ mist.


I used ‚dirty’ cardboard mask, recycled glassine bag and transparent foil with silver stars to create the layers under my photos. Close to the darkness parts of the photos I applied some thin layer of gesso and afternoon it dried I paint a little bit using peerless watercolours and the same shade of Mister Huey’s I used for misting.


Next I added some printable details, ultramarine tangled thread, a title and ‚december’ stamp. I puted a printable tag into the hidden pocket made with glassine bag and…


 … my layout was ready. Oh, I forgot that I also make some tiny splashes using Mister Huey’s Opaque White – my totally favourite not only for the winter projects.
