I have a layout for Challenge #1 and a layout for Challenge #3. I just didn't have time to complete Challenge #2, but will be going back and doing that one later. I have to warn you that this is a long post and remember that you can click on the photo to see it in more detail.
Challenge #1 - Water Color Challenge. I don't have any water colors because I like to use Acrylic Paints. So I'm improvising and using acrylic paint watered down to make my water color for my layout.
I mixed a little bit of the acrylic paint with some water, I wanted a pink that was about the color of the dark pink like the flower buds.
I used the same paint mixture and painted onto my stamp then created a banner.
Challenge #3 - Adding Texture to the background:
I started with the my second and last sheet of the DCWV Rock Star Stack and trimmed down the edges just a touch. then added a triangle piece of the pattern paper in the top right corner.
I pulled out some balsa wood triangles and a square and covered them with the same pattern paper. I stamped the puppy pay onto the square.
I added a few more punched pieces and a few lables here and there. I die cut some more of the Provo Craft - Slab III and added that to the right corner, then added a couple of photo corners.
A couple of the wood veneer hearts finish off the layout.
Jemma is the next person on the hop.
