Today I present my creative process from start to finish at Studio Calico blog! During my work I used supplies from June’s ‚Hello, hello‚ scrapbook main kit and some of my favourite supplies from the shop.

Where to start? – prepare a neutral base for your layout (I used Studio Calico ‚More White’ cardstock for this project) and try to combine a basic composition. Try to compose also a Calendar Mask into your project together with a photo. Prepare some labels and other printables from’ Hello, hello’ collection and two/three colours which you will be using. My choice was: yellow, orange, pink/red with a pop of creamy salmon.
When I made a decision how my basic composition will look like and where I want to place the mask I mixed two shades of Mister Huey’s mist – ‚double yellow’ and ‚canyon’ to create a suitable, delicate orange shade. When my new, self-made Mister Huey’s colour was ready I start misting the mask on the background in very gently way.
When mists were already dry, I sticked a piece of lovely yellow patterned paper and the photo (I used dimentional foams to stick the photo to the base). Next I started to paint areas next to the photo using peerless watercolour papers and Mister Huey’s watercolour set.
In my next step I added some doodles made with Neocolor II crayon – which is one of my favourite medium last weeks. They are like perfect watercolours with a pop of acrylic paint pluses. Here I used a ‚Salmon’ shade.
Now it’s time for the main point of this tutorial – rainbow stripe pattern – how I got this effect? I used a huge stipe-pattern brayer which is unapproachable now in Studio Calico shop, but I know that lots of you already bought it month ago or you have other brayer stamps at home – so you will be able to create your own rainbow pattern at home using other supplies. So, I took this brayer and covered it using all theree colours of Color Theory ink pads: yellow, orange and pink, one by one – like a rainbow. Than I applied it here and there at the background.
At the end of my work, I added some labels, stickers, printables and gems from the ‚Hello, hello’ scrapbook main kit and I wrote one of my favourites phrases using a nib and black ink.
June for me is a month when me and my fabulous hubby have anniversary, so this year it will be 8 years since our wedding and this time spent together is a pure happiness for both of us. I hope that this combo give you just a piece of my warm feelings I would like to share with you during this month.
